A-Rod is slowly progressing

Aug 9, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

Alex Rodriguez 2

Alex Rodriguez is still a long ways away, but there is some moderately good news: no setbacks and, if not yet a timetable, there is a path forward:

Alex Rodriguez will have an X-ray on his left wrist Monday in New York and the plan is for the splint to be removed next week.

“That’s three weeks, it’s been two,’’ Rodriguez said before last night’s 12-8 win over the Tigers at Comerica Park, when he had no trouble taking off his socks and shoes with the hand.

Once the splint is off, baseball-related activities resume.  At the moment the plan is for him to be back in mid-September.

      First person to make a “20+ million dollars per season for the next 7 seasons” reference!

        It’s actually the next 5, but hey what are facts these days.

        My bad. Its actually 6 (counting this season), not 5. But hey what are replys without checking facts these days.

        Maybe you should look up what the word “next” means.

    I really don’t think he’s being missed all that much.

    …and getting older by the minute.

    I am not a fan of A-Rod.

    Leave A-Rod’s wrist alone!

    This latest losing streak has really confused Yankee fans. They just don’t know who to blame when Arod is out of the lineup.

      I blame the Centuar.

    Today makes 2 wins in a row. They were shut down in the first two games in Detroit & came back to split the series. Losing streak be damned!

    Chavez and Nix covering 3rd show that A-Rod is not really needed at 3rd base this year for the team to win. Prior to the hand injury he was having a sub par year -for him. Being an aging superstar can’t be easy to go through and isn’t too fun to watch either. I can imagine the last couple years of Babe Ruth. The first 90% of the career were amazing, the last 10% was embarrassing.
