NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) - The New York Yankees say Alex Rodriguez is expected to have an MRI on his injured left quadriceps at a New York hospital on Sunday.

Before he rejoins the Yankees in Texas he will be meeting with Yankees team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. He has been rehabbing from surgery in January on his left hip.

Rodriguez injured his quad trying to stretch a single into a double on Friday in a rehab game.

On Saturday following his injury, A-Rod was moved to DH and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

If the results of the MRI come back positive for some ailment, Rodriguez will return to the disabled list.

If the results come back negative Rodriguez might still be returning to the DL as he is only allotted a 20-day rehab stay, and the 20th is Sunday.

If A-Rod is not activated by Monday he will be placed on the inactive list and have to wait five days before returning the disabled list.
