As the Yanks limp away from their 16-11 defeat to the Red Sox, how about some good news for a few hours? According to the AP, A-Rod is just days away from a rehab assignment. A-Rod ran the bases again on Saturday, and he reportedly increasing the intensity of his work outs. The Yankees have to tread carefully over the next few weeks with A-Rod though. With Cody Ransom out and Angel Berroa filling in at third, the Yanks are playing with less than a full deck, and the tendency would be to rush A-Rod. I still think he’ll be back before May 15th, but the team will proceed carefully.
