Injury updates: Alex Rodriguez, Eric Chavez
Girardi said Alex Rodriguez (broken hand) will have an X-ray next week and "as far as a timetable, it really just depends on how quickly that heals. So I'm not putting a time on it and we'll just watch it carefully."
Eric Chavez got hit by a pitch just above his right ankle in the eighth. It stiffened up, but X-rays were negative and he thinks he'll be fine
