New York Yankees tell Alex Rodriguez he is not ready to play

Alex Rodriguez wants to play baseball for the New York Yankees. Unfortunately for A-Rod, the feeling isn’t mutual.

The third baseman hired a doctor yesterday to go on local radio in attempts to null and void the medical diagnosis from the New York Yankees after they suggested that his quad was still injured.

Like anything Rodriguez does, it only created more controversy which lead the fourteen time All-Star to backtrack and suggest that he and the Yankees simply “got some wires crossed”.

There were no wires crossed for Yankees general manager Brian Cashman who has become increasingly irritated with Rodriguez’s desire to keep his name and medical situation in the public eye.

Stating he felt good and wanted to play tomorrow night, Cashman fired back today saying that Rodriguez is not medically ready though hopes he’ll be available for another (small) round of rehab starting August 1st.

Per the Yankees Twitter:

Brian Cashman says @AROD‘s quad has improved, the hope is he could have sim/rehab game 8/1 but he is not @MLB ready.

Clearly, it’s nothing more than a stall tactic on Cashman’s part who is waiting for a resolution from Major League Baseball in regards to the pending Biogenesis case.
