A-Rod Close to Re-Joining the Yankees


Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, who is currently rehabbing his knee following surgery last month, is taking an off day on Monday before he resumes to minor league games on Tuesday, according to the AP.

This is not a setback, he is simply taking a day off after playing in a simulated game on Sunday and two games with Single-A Tampa on Friday and Saturday. Tuesday’s start will be with Triple-A Scranton. This means there is a good chance that A-Rod joins the team by Thursday’s game against the Twins.
