Sports log: Alex Rodriguez declined offer of Triple A

BASEBALL

Yankees star Alex Rodriguez struck out twice and went hitless Saturday in his latest minor league game, a day after declining to join New York’s Triple A team. Rodriguez was 0 for 3 for Single A Tampa, dropping to 2 for 18 with one RBI and five strikeouts during his injury rehabilitation assignment. Rodriguez met Friday in Tampa with Major League Baseball officials investigating the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. With rain in the area, the Yankees wanted Rodriguez to travel to Buffalo, where Triple A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre is playing this weekend, a person familiar with the plans told the Associated Press. Rodriguez told the Yankees he was too worn down to go, the person said. The New York Post first reported the situation.
