A-Rod’s return slowed by injured quadriceps

NEW YORK – The Yankees say Alex Rodriguez is expected to have an MRI on his injured left quadriceps at a New York hospital on Sunday.

Rodriguez played designated hitter on Saturday in a minor league game after feeling tightness in the thigh muscle. He has been rehabbing from surgery in January on his left hip.

On Saturday, Rodriguez told reporters after the game that his quad was sore. A-Rod reached his 20-day rehab limit on Sunday. He was hoping to rejoin the Yankees today in Texas.
