MINNEAPOLIS – Third baseman Alex Rodriguez is still at least a day away from returning to the New York Yankees’ lineup.

The team wasn’t ready to take him off the disabled list for Saturday night’s game at Minnesota, but Manager Joe Girardi said he plans to play Rodriguez today against the Twins if Rodriguez feels all right in the morning.

Rodriguez went through another pregame workout Saturday.

He hasn’t played for the Yankees since July 7 due to a torn meniscus in his right knee that required surgery.

PIRATES: Left-hander Paul Maholm is on the disabled list for the first time, sidelined by a shoulder strain.

Maholm has lost four straight starts and five consecutive decisions, and Pittsburgh is 0-7 in games he started since the All-Star break.

DODGERS: Starter Ted Lilly left the game against Colorado with right neck stiffness.

Lilly retired the first two batters of the fifth inning before giving up a triple to Eric Young Jr. and walking Dexter Fowler. After the walk, the Dodgers’ trainer and Manager Don Mattingly came out and talked to Lilly, who then walked to the dugout.

WHITE SOX: Right fielder Carlos Quentin left the game against Texas after making a diving catch in the top of the first inning.

Quentin dived to make the catch, then came up gripping his left shoulder.

TWINS: Shortstop Tsuyoshi Nishioka was taken out of the lineup because of back spasms.
