Alex Rodriguez is out of the New York Yankees

New York Yankees third baseman Alex rodriguez looks at the baseball he hit for his 600th career home run Wednesday.

Alex Rodriguez is out of the New York Yankees' lineup, this time as a precaution after playing two straight games since coming off the disabled list.

Manager Joe Girardi says he's just keeping his slugger fresh as he recovers from a strained left calf. Girardi says he likely will not let Rodriguez play an extended stretch of games for another week.

Rodriguez says he pleaded to play with Girardi and trainers to play Tuesday night against Baltimore, but understands the decision. He is 3 for 7 with a homer and three RBIs in his two games back.

Robinson Cano was in the cleanup spot in place of Rodriguez.
