Just when it seemed like Alex Rodriguez had finally found a groove, the struggling New York Yankees will be without his services for the foreseeable future.

The Yankees announced Wednesday they've placed the veteran slugger on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

After leaving Tuesday's contest against the Baltimore Orioles in the fifth inning, the veteran slugger underwent an MRI on Wednesday that revealed the injury.

Rodriguez, who already missed a couple games last week due to oblique discomfort, appeared to tweak his hamstring running to first base and was replaced in New York's order by Dustin Ackley.

After missing action with the oblique issue, Rodriguez returned to the Yankees' lineup last Wednesday and went 6-for-14 with three home runs and two doubles over his last four games.

The 40-year-old three-time MVP was hitting .194/.275/.444 with five home runs and 12 RBIs prior to the hamstring injury.

In a corresponding move, the Yankees recalled left-handed pitcher James Pazos.
