NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Alex Rodriguez plans on taking the field for the New York Yankees on Monday.
General manager Brian Cashman, who famously F-bombed A-Rod’s last announcement, didn’t throw cold water on anything this time. But he didn’t exactly confirm the third baseman’s schedule, either.
“We started the 20-day rehab and we felt he could complete the 20 days and be available to us in Texas,” Cashman told ESPN.com. “So let’s get through the weekend and see where he is at and see if he is major league able.”
On Wednesday, A-Rod told WFAN’s Mike Francesa that if all goes well he’ll come off the disabled list for the start of a four-game set against the Rangers in Arlington, Tx.
