A-Rod singles in latest minor league rehab game

By

In his latest minor league rehab game with High-A Tampa, Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a run-scoring ground ball single through the left side. He played eight innings at DH, grounding out to short and lining out to second in his other two at-bats. This is the second of three consecutive days Alex will play, so I assume he’ll be back at the hot corner tomorrow after playing their yesterday. Overall, A-Rod is 2-for-15 with three strikeouts in six rehab games so far.

    this is his spring training. results mean nothing. playing without pain, swelling, or setbacks is all that matters. remember, a player can struggle through spring training and then come out gangbusters in april…or they can mash ST and just hit a wall in april.

    cue the “he can’t even hit minor league pitching he sucks” crowd

    Good old A Rod is in October mode already.

    Playoffs!

    Is there any chance that Alex and Jeter come back this weekend? I don’t really know ARod’s timeframe, but is it most likely next weekend in Fenway?
    I also wonder what the roster moves are gonna be for all these guys who are gonna come back in the next few weeks or so. Jeter for Alberto, A-Rod for Cruz makes sense. Granderson for Wells? Phelps for (maybe traded) Joba? Either way the 40-man shuffle is gonna be interesting as well.

    Funny people still think Arod coming back after the Allstar break.It’s good to dream.

      Funny people still have no idea how an appeal process works.

    • Stenbrenner's Ghost says:

      Seriously. The 38 year old, on the down slide of his career, is just dying to come back so he can cough up 17 million dollars in fines, a humiliating 100 game suspension, a grilling by the NY media, and merciless jeers every time he comes to bat.

      The same people probably think OJ is looking for the real killers.

    DIETRICH ENNS PITCHED 5 INNINGS TODAY! HE IS GOING TO EXPLODE AND DIE FROM LOWERING TEH ARMSLOT AND CONVERTING TO THE PEN!

    people have a tendency to both overrate and underrate Arod’s Yankee postseason career

    All things considered… he’s been a *slight* disappointment, not a failure, not a Robinson Cano or Nick Swisher disappointment, but a slight one

    • Stenbrenner's Ghost says:

      you must be joking

      2012 .120

      2011 .111

      2010 .184

      2009 .356

      2007 .267

      2006 .071

      2005 .133

      How can these number not be considered a complete disappointment, especially coming from the highest paid player in the game.

      • brian says:

        because he drew plenty of walks and the Yankees have won only 1 title in the past 12 years, and he was the MVP of the Postseason run (although saying he single-handedly won the title is a bit much, they wouldn’t have won without Sabathia or Jeter either)

        He also put up big numbers in 2004, and was clutch in the Minnesota series that year

        Again… *slight* disappointment..

      • Preston says:

        His career line in the PS is .263/.369/.464.
