The latest from The Associated Press in Tampa about Alex Rodriguez’s rehab from knee surgery. The last paragraph provides a most unexpected update on Pedro Feliciano (remember him?).

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has stepped up his workouts while recovering from knee surgery.

There’s still no timetable, though, on when he’ll rejoin the team.

Rodriguez had Monday’s session moved from the Yankees’ minor league complex to their spring training site at George Steinbrenner Field because of rain.

A-Rod took part in a situational hitting drill during a 57-pitch batting practice session. Rodriguez says his progress so far is “thumbs up.”

Rodriguez is hitting .295 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs. He had surgery on his right knee July 14.

Also, left-handed reliever Pedro Feliciano, who hasn’t pitched this season because of a tear in left shoulder, has resumed working off a bullpen mound. He might be ready to throw batting practice next week.
