Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is ready to shift his minor league rehab assignment to another one of the organization’s lower-level affiliates.

A-Rod finished 0-for-2 on Tuesday in his first rehab game with the Low-A Charleston RiverDogs and was 0-for-2 again on Wednesday evening, grounding out twice on the infield. But he had no issues with his surgically-repaired hip on either night and was able to play third base for a total of seven frames without experiencing any physical or rust-related issues.

Rodriguez will continue to slowly work his way around the Yankees’ minor league system until he’s comfortable playing full nine-inning games. He had hip surgery last January and has been out all season.

The 37-year-old is on track to return to the Yankees’ active roster shortly after the All-Star break.

    “A lot of people ask me, ‘A-Rod, you’re a giant superstar. You can get any woman. Have you ever paid for sex?’ And the answer is yes, I have. Several times, in fact. And it’s actually kinda cool. You can negotiate practically anything and sometimes, even just kind of do stuff in the moment that you never agreed to pay for and it goes by without much argument.”

    At least he didn’t hit into a dp, and take a called third strike, which is what he usually does.

    Ohhh what a relief! Here comes that big boost the offence needs.

    By going 0-2, A-roid has dislocated Ghengis Khan and cemented his place as history’s greatest monster.

    Didn’t know the playoffs began in low-A ball.

    Stop picking on A-Rod! He needs these 0-fers to get ready for when the games count. Besides, the minor leaguers can’t afford his supplements.

    “[insert failure here], but he had no problems with his surgically repaired hip.”
    Now you can cut and paste for the remainder of the season.

      At least until his surgically-repaired hip goes …
