While Alex Rodriguez has his sights set on a Monday return against the Rangers in Texas, general manager Brian Cashman is waiting to see what the next few days bring.
“Let’s get through the weekend,’’ Cashman said of Rodriguez jumping off the disabled list in time to face Yu Darvish in Arlington.
Rodriguez, who didn’t play yesterday after a morning workout, is slated to play for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tonight.
“So far, so good. If we have a good weekend, I’ll be in Texas,” Rodriguez said yesterday on WFAN. “I am going to play four in Scranton and then hopefully we can go strap it up. I’ll feel more comfortable after these four games. There are no shortcuts. I am looking at the long haul.’’
Rodriguez could be returned to the disabled list if the Yankees believe he isn’t prepared for major league competition.
Should Rodriguez be ready to play for the Yankees on Monday, Cashman was asked if he would be given Sunday off from SWB’s game.
