Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez will start the New York Yankees' biggest game of the year on the bench.
 
After being pinch hit for in Games 3 and 4 against the Baltimore Orioles, A-Rod was removed from the starting lineup entirely for Game 5 on Friday.
 
Eric Chavez is to start at third base while Game 3 star Raul Ibanez will be the designated hitter in the winner-take-all game.
