In his first minor league rehab game with Double-A Trenton, Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with a walk and a long homerun to left-center field. Even the reporters who don’t like him admitted it was a bomb on Twitter. Here’s video. He struck out in his other at-bat.
A-Rod played five innings at third base as planning and fielded two ground balls. He’s scheduled to play seven innings with the Thunder tomorrow night, but who knows after that. Alex could join the team in Chicago for Monday’s series opener against the White Sox, or he could be suspended for life. I suppose there’s a chance this was the last homer of his career, and that kinda makes me sad.
