08:57 AM ET 09.03 | Erring on the side of extreme caution, Alex Rodriguez sat out for a sixth consecutive game, missing the opener of a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium with a sprained left thumb. He took a full batting practice and fielded ground balls today, intensifying his workload from the previous day, and expects to return to the lineup Saturday afternoon.

It has to make one wonder if this just gets worse every year from here on out.

I have to wonder also... 36 years old, former PED user, possibly a chronic hip condition..... Maybe we've seen the best of A-Rod.

And only 5 or 6 more years to go on that contract, too
