If you missed the New York Yankees beating of the Minnesota Twins yesterday afternoon, you obviously couldn’t have noticed the absence of Alex Rodriguez.
Yes, A-rod was AWOL from both the field and the DH spot yesterday afternoon. And Newsday confirmed that he is suffering from a ‘bruised’ left foot.
