Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has stepped up his workouts while recovering from knee surgery.Andrew Marchand also had this from Girardi about A-Rod's return:
Rodriguez had today's session moved from the Yankees' minor league complex to their spring training site at George Steinbrenner Field because of rain.
A-Rod took part in a situational hitting drill during a 57-pitch batting practice session. Rodriguez says his progress so far is "thumbs up."
If all goes according to plan then by this time next week, Alex Rodriguez could be back in the Yankees' lineup in Kansas City.Nice.
"I think that’s very feasible," Joe Girardi said on Sunday.
