Here is the Yankees' lineup on Tuesday against Baltimore and Orioles starter Tommy Hunter, a game that may not be played due to incessant rain. Alex Rodriguez is out. No reason has been given yet. But Rodriguez missed eight of the Yankees' 11 from Aug. 23 to Sept. 2 with a sprained left thumb.
He returned to the lineup last Saturday. Girardi didn't have a lineup around 4 p.m., saying he had to check with a few players before deciding. Wonder why he chose to keep A-Rod out?
Also, Jorge Posada will get the start at DH over Jesus Montero, who is 5-for-13 with two homers and three RBIs in his first four games.
