KOMO News recently reported on May 6th, that New York Yankees’ third baseman, Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod) is returning to the field “for the first time since surgery on his left hip almost 4 months ago.”
They also report that, “He joined a group of injured New York Yankees starters Monday at the team’s minor league complex. The 37-year-old third baseman ran, played catch and hit off a tee.”
Rodriguez was off the field and had hip surgery back in mid-January for a hip injury including a torn labrum and hip impingement. Since surgery he has been in recovery, physical therapy rehab, and is currently on a doctor ordered 30-day rehab schedule.
