An x-ray performed during a routine check-up showed that the broken bone in Alex Rodriguez‘s hand is healing well. The bone was broken when Felix Hernandez hit him with a pitch a little over three weeks ago. A-Rod will shed the brace he’s been wearing and continue his rehab. He’s been hitting off a tee already, but he’s still not expected to return until early-to-mid-September. Eric Chavez has been amazing at third, but getting Alex back will obviously be huge. Glad to hear he’s healing well.
