Rodriguez taking ground balls during BP

ph_121347As I type this, Alex Rodriguez is at third base taking ground balls during batting practice. I believe these are the first fielding drills he’s done since the calf injury. Looks good to me, but I’m hardly an expert.

For now, the plan is for Rodriguez to return to the lineup at designated hitter. He told Joe Girardi that his calf feels strong enough to play, but Girardi wants to check with A-Rod after BP before he finalizes the lineup.

“He wanted to give it a try today,” Girardi said. “I talked to with the trainers and they’re good with it. If he feels something during BP, then we’ll shut it down.”

So far, so good.
