The three-time AL MVP had been set to play his first regular-season games in his hometown of Miami against the Marlins.
Rodriguez said he had reserved about 100 tickets for family and friends, including his mother, and he wasn't looking forward to telling her that the only place she'll likely see him before Sunday is the bench.
"Have to tell her to save the gas money," Rodriguez said. "She's going to be disappointed."
