A-Rod takes next step

April 13, 2009


— Alex Rodriguez will report today to the New York Yankees’ spring training complex in Tampa, Fla., to continue his rehabilitation from right hip surgery.

Rodriguez had surgery March 9 in Vail, Colo., to remove an impingement in the joint and drain a cyst in the hip.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Rodriguez would stretch, do agility work, light jogging, take some grounders, hit off a tee and take soft-toss swings today.

The three-time MVP is expected to return to the lineup in May.
