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.
