Obviously I’m here at Citi Field dealing with All-Star Game festivities, but some attention will be directed toward Reading, Pennsylvania where Alex Rodriguez is continuing his rehab assignment with Double-A Trenton.
Rodriguez actually spoke with reporters before tonight’s rehab game and said he’s scheduled for four at-bats and up to seven innings in the field. He also acknowledged that he skipped Friday’s scheduled rehab game — which was ultimately rained out — but said his relationship with the Yankees is strong.
“Whatever I do with the organization, I’ll definitely keep private,” Rodriguez told our friend Andy McCullough. “But I will tell you, I think, over the last several weeks we’ve had very productive conversations. And I think we’re all aligned to come back on time and healthy.”
Rodriguez’s numbers have been pretty ugly through this rehab assignment, but it’s allowed to last only seven more days. He did have a double yesterday.
“The ball I hit yesterday was probably the best ball I’ve hit in at least 10 months,” he said.
If you don’t already, make sure you’re following Andy on Twitter. Looks like he’ll have Rodriguez updates from Reading.
