A-Rod in the Bronx for Opening Day
Alex Rodriguez continues to rehab from left hip surgery in January, and his expected timetable for a return to the field remains the same: some time around the All-Star break in mid-July.
But you'll see him at Yankee Stadium before that. The Yankees' third baseman is expected to be at the Stadium for the April 1 opener against the Red Sox. A-Rod has yet to resume "baseball activities," as they say.
“He’s doing everything he needs to be doing,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday. “I’m not sure when his actual rehab-to-field-activity will take place. I don’t have that yet."
