A-Rod Hits HR in Rehab Game
Alex Rodriguez’s rehab assignment rolls on despite the beating he has taken in the media of late. Like it or not, he’s going to be playing baseball soon. It doesn’t appear that Selena Roberts’ book A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez will do anything to effect his playing status. The court of public opinion is a different story, but the show must go on, both for the Yankees and for fantasy baseball teams with the man everyone is learning to hate.
A-Rod hit leadoff every inning for seven innings. He was 1 for 6 with a HR and a walk. The HR came off the Phillies’ J.C. Romero who ironically has been banished from the Bigs for fifty days as he serves a PED suspension. He got popped taking Andro, which was Mark McGwire’s drug of choice. At least that’s what he wanted to lead everyone to believe.
A-Rod remains on schedule to return to the Yankees by May 15th or sooner.
