The Yankees have announced that Alex Rodriguez will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Charleston tomorrow. He’ll start at third base and play a minimum of three innings.
Joe Girardi has guessed that Rodriguez will need pretty close to a full 20-day rehab assignment before being activated. At the very least, beginning a rehab assignment tomorrow means the Yankees believe Rodriguez could be ready within the next three weeks, which puts him back in the lineup — if all goes well — before the trade deadline.
Eduardo Nunez is currently on a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa.
