ESPN REPORTS: Joe Girardi said the team is being cautious with Alex Rodriguez's ailing right hip because he had some problems with it last year.
"Alex expressed a little stiffness. There was really no pain," Girardi said on Wednesday. "We just thought it was best because he had some minor issues last year with it. We'll have a better idea after today with what the course of plan is."
"Whenever you have something going on, you're concerned," Girardi said. "The fact he didn't have a lot of pain is a little bit more comforting. He's been able to play, and play at a high level. It hasn't kept him from doing anything. It hasn't kept him from driving the baseball. That's the good thing."
