Pre-Game NotesPosted: July 8, 2011
Here are some notes from before today’s game:
- A-Rod and Derek Jeter have both pulled themselves out of the All-Star Game. Rodriguez has that sore knee that he’s been nursing and he went for a pre-cautionary MRI today. Jeter said that he feels he needs more rest after just getting off the disabled list with the calf injury. Only three Yankees remain on the team.
- Nick Swisher is now day-to-day with a sore left quad.
- Brian Gordon has been bought by a team from Korea and is now gone.
