A-Rod to begin his minor league rehab assignment

Aug 30, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

Eleven days (at most, and likely way fewer) until A-Rod returns:


The Yankees need to get healthy, and getting A-Rod back will be a nice boost. Especially if he can come close to the hot streak he had before his injury.

    Sometimes I think Arod’s name and presence provide more than his bat. It will be great to get him back, but I’m not going to keep my expectations low.

      With the contract he has, I definitely wouldn’t hold him to low standards

    Therein lies the problem, Arod hasn’t had a hot streak in a long time, I really don’t see where they’ve missed him, but I understand if something were to happen to Chavez there would be a problem and Chavez is fragile. I haven’t thought to myself, man, I can’t wait for Arod to get back.

      It’s more than that. It was pointed out today that Cano has been hitting .273 since he left. A-Rod has a presence in the middle of the line up that is still respected.

        bigharold…. I really hadn’t thought about that, so yes you make an excellent point.

    From your fingers to G-d’s eyes.

    Ha I totally agree with the presence thing with A rod, he may not do crap in the game but for whatever reason as a yankee fan I feel better that he is coming back to the lineup soon.

    I gotta be honest, I’m not a Yankee fan, and I’d completely forgotten he was even on the DL until I caught a blurb on SportsCenter the other day about his rehab…
