Alex Rodriguez Diagnosed With Left Leg Contusion, Will Miss Saturday's Game

The Yankees have scratched Alex Rodriguez from Saturday's game against the Red Sox following the leg injury he sustained during batting practice, reports Staten Island Live.

A-Rod has been diagnosed with a left leg contusion -- in other words, a bruise. X-rays have not yet been performed. Hopefully for the Yankees, A-Rod can get back on the field quickly, as they're in the midst of a four-game series with a Red Sox team that has a chance to narrow the gap in the A.L. East.
