A-Rod Fouls Ball off Foot, Day-to-Day with Soreness

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

An injury-plagued season continues for Alex Rodriguez.

In his final at-bat of the New York Yankees' game against the Minnesota Twins last night, third baseman Alex Rodriguez fouled a Jared Burton pitch off of his foot. He was in pain and took a moment before returning to the batter's box, but he stayed in the game. Today though, it was reported that he is "day-to-day" and will miss the series finale against the Twins with a sore foot. As Mike Axisa pointed out, it will be unclear how much the Yankees see of him in the upcoming four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays on turf at the Rogers Centre. It would not surprise if he only plays in the DH or pinch-hitting roles in order to avoid aggravating the injury.

Chances are that the swollen foot is a relatively minor concern and that it will go away after a few days of rest. That's what the Yankees are hoping because when foot injuries linger, they affect nearly every aspect of the game. Ideally, he will only miss a few games at most and return to the lineup perhaps in the three home games against the Boston Red Sox to end the season on October 1st-3rd.
