Joe Girardi gave us an update on Alex Rodriguez’s status after the game.

He will have an MRI in Tampa next week, probably Monday or Tuesday, to determine how his leg has healed. If he is cleared, he will then play in two extended spring training games. If that goes well, he would then rejoin the Yankees.

Now here’s the tricky part.

It turns out that A-Rod is not eligible to be activated until May 15. His last game was April 28. But Rodriguez was not placed on the disabled list until April 30.

The simple version: If everything goes well, he could play next Thursday.
