Alex Rodriguez is under fire once again for rumored use of performance enhancing drugs.  Rodriguez is rehabbing a bad hip, and in order to keep the media from hounding Rodriguez during his rehab, ESPN New York is reporting that the team will keep his rehab location a secret. “I’m not going to say to try and keep away the extra whatever you want to call it, paparazzi, whatever it is, the stakeout wherever he is working out,” Cashman said at the Hard Rock Café in Time Square, where he helped support the Yankees’ radio producer/engineer, Carlos Silva, who is battling cancer. “That’s the only reason I’m not going to say where he is going to be on a given day.” The 37-year-old Rodriguez underwent hip surgery in January and could miss most of the upcoming season.  Yankees medical staff has been in contact with Alex in regards to his rehab. “We have a protocol set up for Alex that was already in line through Dr. (Brian) Kelly’s office,” Cashman said, referencing the surgeon who performed the operation. “I’m not going to state where he will be when camp opens. It hasn’t been altered with the recent publicity that he is dealing with.” “The only thing required right now is patience and smarts,” Cashman said. “By smarts, I mean, do not get ahead of things you don’t know about. Do not speak to areas you have no knowledge of. Do not throw out sound bites that are convenient because everybody is hungry and thirsty for answers before you can legitimately provide any. So that’s obviously what we are doing.
