A-R(Odd) man out: Yankees' latest deal marginalizes Alex Rodriguez even further

NEW YORK -- The Yankees have been quite candid about letting the world know what they expect from Alex Rodriguez in 2015: next to nothing. And now, if there had been any doubt before, A-Rod surely knows what he can expect from the Yankees: maybe even less than they expect from him. Friday's trade of Martin Prado and David Phelps to the Miami Marlins for starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, 1B/OF/DH Garrett Jones and pitching prospect Domingo German does more than shore up the starting rotation and add a backup for the oft-injured Mark Teixeira.
