A-Rod singles in latest minor league rehab game

Rosenthal: Yankees are "aggressively pushing" Joba and Hughes
Matt's thoughts on a random Wednesday

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.

      This joke expired about six years ago.

      • Cool Lester Smooth

        I thought it was 4 years ago.

        You know, when he had one of the greatest post-seasons of all time and singlehandedly won us a World Series.

        • trr

          and all the other great post-seasons he’s had!

          • Cool Lester Smooth

            Exactly. He kicked ass in 1997, 2000 and 2004.

            He’s actually a career 119 wRC+ hitter in the postseason.

        Making fun of A-Rod will never go out of style.

      • Jimmy

        I thought that joke was from October.

      • JonS

        Except…he just did that LAST October.

    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.

    • trr

      Jeter? Yes
      A-Rod? No

  • EndlessJose

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

    • Get Phelps Up

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

    • Stenbrenner’s Ghost

      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.

  • brian

    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

      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

        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

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

        • Steinbrenner’s Ghost

          His Yankee line is suck, blows, sinks, awful, Great, putrid, laughable, highway-robbery.
