A-Rod goes hitless in second minor league rehab game

By

In his second minor league rehab game with Low-A Charleston, Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-2 at the plate while playing three innings at third base, as scheduled. He grounded out to first base and then to second base in his two at-bats. Alex had to make one defensive play at the hot corner, starting a 5-4-3 double play.

Based on what we heard yesterday, A-Rod will now return to Florida and resume his rehab with High-A Tampa. The weather in Tampa hasn’t been great the last few days, which is why he had to head to Charleston. The 20-day rehab window expires right smack in the middle of the All-Star break, and Alex said he anticipates needing the full 20 days to get ready following hip surgery and close to eight months of inactivity.

    0-4 since his injury. Unbelievable. Clearly time to DFA him. Adams can’t be worse than that, right? ;)

    I got a real kick out the headline for the post today:

    “Playoff Form”

    Referring to last night 0-2.

    I don’t know how any Yankees fan isn’t anxious for him to come back. The offense is bad. Alex is an ENORMOUS upgrade over Adams.
