The beginning of the end for Alex Rodriguez

The New York Yankees benched Alex Rodriguez, who has struggled all season against righties, for the second consecutive day on Monday.

The Yankees and Rangers are in a rain delay in the ninth inning of a one-run game. The rain had been falling for innings before Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman came in to try to finish off a victory. Chapman walked the first batter before falling behind the second. Yankees manager Joe Girardi came out to complain, causing the umpires to decide to call for the tarp. Rangers' manager Jeff Bannister argued the decision, but did not get it overturned. The game was originally delayed for 25 minutes at the start even though it hadn't rained.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman told me pre-game that he was feeling a little sick with cold-like symptoms; stressed he'd be ready to pitch tonight if called upon.

July 24, 2014 – Last time the Yankees beat the Rangers at home. Lost all 3G in 2015, equaling their longest home losing streak to the Rangers since the team became the Texas Rangers in 1972.

Iván Nova's last 7 starts (including tonight) = 30 ER over 39.0 IP – 6.92 ERA

I asked GM Brian Cashman if hot hitting outfield prospect Aaron Judge has put himself on the radar to be called up. Cashman didn't sound as if that was an option in the short term. He praised Judge for his improvement, but refused to list Judge as a guy the Yankees were thinking of calling up. Judge has hit six homers in his last 33 at-bats. He is batting .266 with 15 homers, 45 RBIs and an .837 OPS in 72 Triple-A games.

No All-Star starters for Yankees?

In the AL's final ballot update, C Brian McCann (No. 4) and OF Carlos Beltran (No. 10) hold steady in the voting at their positions. The gap between Beltran and a starting outfield spot is just over one millions votes. Voting ends June 30.

Yankees stay put at No. 16 in rankings

New York went 3-2 at home this past week to get to 37-37. The club will now host the Texas Rangers for four games before heading back out on the road to finish the first half. Power Rankings

¿Será el último chance para Iván Nova?

El lanzador dominicano tiene mucha competencia por el puesto de abridor en la rotación y de su actuación ante los enrachados Rangers podría definirse si mantiene el puesto o lo pierde. Leer

Girardi to use A-Rod differently (0:29)

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says he is going to "do something different" in his use of Alex Rodriguez, meaning A-Rod won't play against a lot of righties in the near term. Rodriguez had been the regular DH, but his OPS against rightiesis just .584, while vs. lefties it is .837. A-Rod said, "You havent' heard the last of me." A-Rod has been benched for the second straight game. He will start against a lefty on Tuesday, but after that it is uncertain how much he will play.

Rangers vs Yankees lineup for the first game of a 4-game series starting tonight at Yankee Stadium.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Alex Rodriguez will start against a lefty tomorrow but was non-committal about A-Rod at DH against righties the following two days. The Yankees play in San Diego this weekend, meaning A-Rod, who is being benched for a second straight game tonight, will likely not be in the lineup for much of the next week since there is no DH in the NL park and A-Rod doesn't play the field anymore.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

A-Rod on being out of the Yankees lineup for a second day in a row: "I'm a little surprised. I've been here for a long time and I want to be out there every day and I want to contribute. All you can do is control your attitude and your work ethic, and I feel good about both."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Alex Rodriguez has been benched for a second consecutive game. Rodriguez, who has struggled against righties all year, has been replaced by Carlos Beltran at DH in Monday's lineup against Texas righty Chi Chi Gonzalez, just as he was Sunday.

A-Rod's fantasy value evaporating (0:25)

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Team president Randy Levine on suggestions that Yankees should become sellers at trade deadline: "I don't pay any attention to any of that. That's for you guys [with] nothing more important to write about that to write nonsense. When we decide to become sellers, if we decide to become sellers or if we decide to become buyers, you'll know. The difference is that most of you guys have never run anything and we have a lot of history here of knowing what we're doing. [We have] a lot of confidence in our baseball operations people. So, we'll see what happens. All the rest is just noise."

Yankees President Randy Levine on team possibly being sellers at trade deadline: "You guys obviously have nothing more important to write about than to write nonsense about that."
