In baseball, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez walked out of his grievance hearing after an arbitrator refused to order baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to testify.

In a statement Rodriguez said he was disgusted with the process and wouldn’t participate any further.

In a blockbuster trade, the Texas Rangers acquired first baseman Prince Fielder and cash considerations from the Detroit Tigers for second baseman Ian Kinsler.

The move gives the Tigers some contract relief and it opens the door to shift two-time defending AL MVP Miguel Cabrera to first base.

Checking the scoreboard, the Mets suffered their fifth straight loss. Cody Asche supplied a go-ahead, two-run triple in the fourth inning of Philadelphia's 2-1 win.

Keith Strudler: A-Rod, The Yankees And The Playoffs

Perhaps the worst thing that could happen to the New York Yankees right now is that they actually make this year’s playoffs. It’s still a long-shot, with the Yanks some five games back and trailing three teams. But given their torrid pace of late, anything is possible. That may be particularly true if Alex Rodriguez plays like the Alex Rodriguez of old, long before he sat out this entire season recovering from hip surgery. He’s looked good so far, way better than the A-Rod that limped his way through last year’s playoff exit, barely able to hit the ball much less run the bases. This is all assuming A-Rod is allowed to play the rest of the season, which feels like a safe bet given his appeal from a 211 game suspension for his use of performance enhancing drugs.
