Alex Rodriguez's doctor says New York Yankees star is healthy

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez reportedly strained his quadricep and was being held out of action. The doctor who examined the injury joined Mike Francesa on his radio show and said he spent 20 minutes looking at the quadricep of Rodriguez, which led him to no conclusion.

“To be perfectly honest, I don’t see any sort of injury there,” the doctor told Francesa.

The doctor clarified that a grade-1 strain could not show up in an MRI. It could be based on strains. The doctor then said he asked A-Rod if anything hurts, and Rodriguez simply said “no.”

Alex asked the doctor if he were fit to play, and the doctor said without examination he couldn’t make that call. But when he asked A-Rod what he thought, A-Rod said “100%.”

“So I’m guessing a guy who has been playing ball his entire life, knows his body,” the doctor says.
