The Yankees are set to start a two-game series against the Washington Nationals tonight. Without the ability to use a DH, Alex Rodriguez is expected to sit both games (Murti, May 19).

Manager Joe Girardi made it clear that A-Rod will serve as the Yankees primary DH for the rest of the season in an attempt to keep the 39-year-old fresh. But the offense has been struggling as of late and could miss his presence in the line up.

In the past seven games, the Yankees have scored more than two runs only twice and have lost?five of their last six games.
