This from the AP:

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez increased his onfield drills Monday as the three-time AL MVP started his second full week working out at New York’s minor league complex in Florida.

A-Rod, comimg back from right hip surgery in Colorado on March 9, did additional defensive work, making 19 throws to first and nine to second after fielding grounders. He also continues to look impressive in batting practice, hitting 10 homers in 75 swings.

“It feels good,” an upbeat Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez is running in the outfield at the start and end of his onfield sessions, but has not started full-speed sprints or running the bases.


Joe Girardi talked a little bit about Alex today and estimated that it would be two weeks before he got into minor league games. I think it’ll be a lot sooner than that.

Girardi said one of the hurdles A-Rod would have to clear is being able to slide.
