Alex Rodriguez blending in with Yankees

Alex Rodriguez isn’t the most important hitter in the Yankees’ lineup, but he is the most interesting.

Glove-ly day for A-Rod and Yankees

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- The best first basemen, like the best umpires, are the ones you hardly notice. They're not supposed to interest you, excite you, or make you nervous. If they're doing their jobs correctly, you'd barely even know they were out there. On this day, however, a first baseman for the New York Yankees was definitely the center of attention. For one particular play, he was an object of fascination because this first baseman was Alex Rodriguez, and in his 21st season in the big leagues, was about to attempt something he had never done before: Range to his right, field a ground...

Alex Rodriguez plays first base for first time -- and looks good

The experiment lasted three innings and was mostly uneventful.

Postgame notes: “See the game from a totally different lens”

Bottom of the first, the Yankees first out of the game was a routine 5-3 grounder. Except this time, Alex Rodriguez was the 3, not the 5. Making his career debut at first base, Rodriguez looked perhaps awkward, but passable at the position. He had three chances — two throws and one ground ball — […] The post Postgame notes: “See the game from a totally different lens” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Day 36: Break out the first baseman's mitt

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- We will get a relatively rare look at Nathan Eovaldi versus big-league hitters today -- he has made three starts this spring, but none since March 15 as Joe Girardi has been using him in minor-league games -- but the real curiosity today is seeing Alex Rodriguez play first base in a game for the first time at any level of his career, including high school. A-Rod is hitting cleanup in today's lineup, and he will have the help and support of the regular Yankees infield, minus Didi Gregorius (wrist sprain).

A-Rod getting time at first, but position still hinges on Teixeira

Alex Rodriguez is going to play first base on Sunday, and that’s attention-grabbing for obvious reasons. For one thing, it’s Rodriguez, and anything he does seems to generate attention. For another thing, it’s a veteran player learning a new position, and would spark at least some curiosity for even a role player. It’s also noteworthy […] The post A-Rod getting time at first, but position still hinges on Teixeira appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Who's on first? On Sunday, it will be Alex Rodriguez

An idea first proposed to Alex Rodriguez in October finally will become reality Sunday.

Postgame notes: “I thought he was moving pretty good”

This is what Joe Girardi said this morning about the way Alex Rodriguez has been running and moving in spring training: “I think he’s run harder (lately). I think we’ve all seen that, and that that’s definitely improved. I still want to see him go from second to home and from first to third, we […] The post Postgame notes: “I thought he was moving pretty good” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Who's on first? A-Rod!

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The moment many of us have been waiting for all spring is about to arrive. On Sunday, Alex Rodriguez will play first base in a major-league ballgame -- in fact, in a ballgame at any level -- for the first time in his life. "I'm excited about it," he said. "I told Joe [Girardi] to really keep a close eye on me. He said he will." Rodriguez has taken a few grounders at first this spring, and earlier this week Girardi said he worked on some of the finer points of the position, such as where to go on relays from the outfield and how to defense the bunt.
