For those who may have forgotten Alex Rodriguez actually still plays baseball. Aside from the PED scandals and other issues that seem to plague Rodriguez, he’s making some big strides in his rehab stint for his hip. According to CBS Sports his rehab stint is going off without a hitch: Alex Rodriguez’s recent progress is said by people around the Yankees to have been dramatic, with one person calling it “fantastic” and another even speculating A-Rod could possibly begin to play rehab games just after the All-Star break. There have been dire predictions about A-Rod’s future based on the circumstances of a player in his late 30s undergoing two major hip surgeries and all the rest of his history. But one Yankees person, hearing of his recent progress, marveled Wednesday about Rodriguez. “He may beat everyone back,” the Yankees person said, meaning all the many other injured Yankees. With so many injuries piling up on the Yankees surely this comes as a good sign–that is of course unless Rodriguez gets suspended. For now a small and rare silver lining for a man who so desperately needs it.
