Alex Rodriguez left the New York Yankees' exhibition game against Boston on Wednesday night after being hit in the face by a deflected ball at third base.

And it was against the Red Sox, the team that tried and failed to land him this winter before the Yankees managed to work out a deal to land the reigning AL Most Valuable Player and move him to third base from shortstop, his natural position.

Brian Daubach was on first base when Kevin Millar doubled to left field. Hideki Matsui fielded the ball and threw to third, but the ball hit Daubach on the leg as he slid and ricocheted into Rodriguez's face below his left eye.

Yankees trainer Gene Monahan ran out to tend to Rodriguez and lead him off the field. The team said Rodriguez had a bruised left cheekbone and was taken for precautionary X-rays.

thats really good news that he is ok, the yankees would be in some trouble if he was gone for a while.

I would agree that would be such a loss if he was out,sounds like he is going to be ok though.

Who would they play in his place if he was out?

doesnt mean its a disater a team doesnt win by 1 player. A team wins by being a team, with pitching and great hitting, and closing out games, not just a 3baseman

Well i would say if they lost Arod through injury it would be a big loss,maybe not devastating enough for them to lose lots of games but still bad enough,look at derek jeter last season he came back from injury and didn't do very well,so it's not the time the players are out it's getting their form back as well.
