Joe Girardi on Dee Gordon testing positive: "I'm surprised but I'm not. Now, Dee Gordon wouldn't have been a guy that I would have predicted, but it's disappointing. I don't think it's ever going to go away. I think the rewards are too great from a financial standpoint. "

The Yankees' offense has been awful this year. In 15 of their 20 games, the Yankees have scored three runs or less, while in 10 of their 20 they have scored two or less. "It is going to turn and when it does, it is going to turn big," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Yankees starter CC Sabathia was decent on Wednesday. For his fourth straight start, he allowed three runs. It was the second time, he had gone six innings, while the other two he only lasted 4 2/3 innings. He left trailing the Rangers, 3-2, in the seventh.

Alex Rodriguez knocked his third homer of the season. The solo shot in the fourth tied the Yankees-Rangers game at two. A-Rod has three homers on the season and 690 in his career. His oblique -- which cost him the last two games -- appears to be fine.

With the Yankees' offense struggling, manager Joe Girardi was asked if he would ever doing anything weird or unconventional, like pick the lineup out of a hat, to try and kick-start it. "I'm too numbers oriented to do that." Girardi said.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

I know a lot of people think Joe Girardi was a little crazy for suggesting a ban on shifts. I mean, I think it's a silly idea as well, but consider the NBA has rules against certain types of zone defenses (like a defender standing in the key not guarding anyone) and Girardi's suggestion doesn't seem so outrageous.
