The New York Yankees, currently looking more like an emergency room than a Major League Baseball team can use any help they can get – even if it comes from shunned star Alex Rodriguez.
A-Rod, who’s been nursing a hip injury since the start of the season has yet to take the field for the Yankees in 2013 but that’s soon to change, assuming everything goes okay and the slugger doesn’t experience any setbacks in his upcoming rehab stint.
The New York Daily News is reporting that Rodriguez should begin his assignment around July 1st:
For the last six months, Alex Rodriguez has been linked almost daily to a shady Coral Gables anti-aging clinic and its founder, Anthony Bosch, but there is finally some good news for the star-crossed Yankee: he has been medically cleared to play in rehab games beginning July 1.
The rehab assignment would take a while as it’s expected he’ll begin at Tampa and then work his way through the Yankees minor league system with stops at both Trenton and Scranton before returning to the big boy club near (likely after) the All-Star break.
