Alex Rodriguez' hamstring pull is a "1-plus," according to Joe Girardi, which is more severe than CC Sabathia's groin pull. Girardi said he "hoped" A-Rod would return at the end of the 15-day DL period "but we'll have to see how he heals." A similar injury suffered by the Marlins Giancarlo Stanton in 2013 sidelined the then 24-year-old for five weeks. A-Rod turns 41 in July.

The Cubs have destroyed some bad teams this year, but against the Pirates, Cardinals and Nationals: 7-1 W-L, while outscoring them 43-19.

Wallace Matthews ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Girardi said CC Sabathia's groin pull, in his left (push off) leg, was diagnosed as a Grade 1, which normally means at least a three-week absence. "I think you would feel pretty fortunate if you could get him then," Girardi said. Ivan Nova will take over Sabathia's rotation spot beginning Monday night against the KC Royals.
