Report: Alex Rodriguez Out of Lineup Saturday, May Be Out for Extended Period

Alex Rodriguez has been out of the lineup for four of the past five games, and that streak may continue for the next couple of series.

A-Rod, who could play only for one at-bat on Friday, will sit on Saturday against Seattle as he battles a calf strain.

"I don't expect him to play in this series and I don't know if he'll play in Toronto," Joe Girardi said, reports ESPN.

Girardi does not think that the DL is an option for Rodriguez, and Thursday against the White Sox is a likely targeted return date.
