Description: Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez will get the day off on Friday.
Insight: Rodriguez has gotten a lot of rest recently as he sat out Tuesday, and the Yankees didn't play on Thursday. He barely plays anyway because all he does is DH. Garrett Jones will be the designated hitter on Friday, though, and Rodriguez will play on Saturday.
 
4/28/2015 3:52:00 PM

Description: Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez is 10-for-25 with two home runs in his career versus Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz.

4/11/2015 11:35:00 AM

Description: Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez has eight hits, including two doubles and a home run, in 22 at-bats versus Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey.

Description: Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-2 in his return to the field on Opening Day Monday.
Insight: Rodriguez was met with a standing ovation from the Yankee faithful at "The Stadium". What a joke. But from a fantasy stand point, Rodriguez has value at a weak third base spot. He had a solid spring and knocked in a run with the single on Monday. That turned out to be the Yankees only run of the game.
 
3/25/2015 3:43:00 PM
Description: Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Alex Rodriguez can be the team's regular designated hitter this season according to the Wall Street Journal.
Insight: Rodriguez is hitting .286 with two home runs and a double in 33 plate appearances this spring. Rodriguez is going to turn 40 and both his hips have already been surgically repaired, so he could benefit from a full season just hitting.
 
3/11/2015 5:27:00 PM
Description: Yankees 3B/DH Alex Rodriguez hit his first homer of the spring.
Insight: He did so off Brandon Workman in the fourth inning. Rodriguez has hit well this spring (.455 BA), and will likely open up the season as New York's designated hitter.
