Once famed slugger Alex Rodriguez is nearing his return to the Bronx Bombers, this after moving his rehab to Triple-A Scranton this morning.
Rodriguez has struggled during his stint in Double-A, hitting a woeful 5 of 28, good for a .179 average. There was a display of some pop though as the shamed Yankee infielder did hit one over the fence and sent a few more into the deep corners of the park during his rehabilitation.
Hoping to get A-Rod a little more comfortable with higher quality pitching, the Yankees will keep him in Triple-A for the next four days before activating him.
Per general manager Brian Cashman, via Andy McCullough:
Alex Rodriguez will move his rehab to Triple-A Scranton on Thursday, Brian Cashman says. “He’s progressing.”
