Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez is headed to the 15-day DL with a hamstring strain. A-Rod, 40, is hitting .203 with five homers and 12 RBIs. He hurt the hamstring running to first base on Tuesday. In his place, the Yankees are calling up reliever James Pazos. Rodriguez is in the second to last season of his 10-year, $275 million contract. He is being paid $21 million this year and next.
