Alex Rodriguez Update

It’s now July and Yankees fans still have awaited the return of Alex Rodriguez. He missed all of spring training due to, “rehab” in New York, and in July he started a minor league rehab assignment. A return on Monday was ruined when we found out that A-Rod had a grade one quad strain. However, there are plenty of topics up for debate with A-Rod. Maybe this strain is to avoid a suspension, or maybe he’s just down right done.

Let’s look at the timetable that A-Rod set out on. In February he announced he would miss all of spring training to rehab in New York. Around mid-July, he started his minor league rehab assignment down in Charleston with the Yankees single A affiliate, the Charleston River Dogs. Aside from drawing huge crowds, A-Rod stated to USA Today that this was a start of his rebirth. In his first game with the Dogs, Rodriguez went 0 for 2. Then as he progressed through double A Trenton and now triple A Scranton Wilkes-Barre, he has certainly progressed. His total minors stats include a .200 batting average, two homers, and eight runs batted in. Rodriguez was expected to join the team against his former club, the Texas Rangers (what a coincidence right?). ┬áNow the question is, will he even return this season? The answer remains a pondering subject to the league and the Bronx Bombers.
