A-Rod will play two nine-inning rehab games before returning


Alex Rodriguez will officially begin his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Tampa tonight, but the team wants him to play two full, nine-inning games with Triple-A Scranton before they activate him off the disabled list. Alex will DH tonight, play five or six innings in the field tomorrow, then if all goes well, he’ll head north to join SWB early next week. It sounds like the target day for his return is, coincidentally enough, Thursday at Target Field against the Twins.

    You think he takes the team to Mons Venus or Bern’s Steakhouse?

    Bring Montero with you when you finish with SWB, A-Rod.

    He just homered in his first AB.

    This is extremely disappointing. Being a Yankee fan in Kansas I only get to see the Yankees for 3 games per year and those games are Monday-Wednesday…Please make it back earlier Alex. I thought he was due back on Monday? This seems like a lot of rehab games for an extremely minor surgery. I figured we’d see him DH tonight. Play part of a game at 3B Saturday and then a full game Sunday. If he responded well he’d be with the big club Monday.
