With a 100-game PED suspension looming, Alex Rodriguez continues to struggle down on the farm.

WFAN’s SweenyMurti reports that the veteran third baseman finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in his third rehab game on Tuesday evening with the High-A Tampa Yankees. It was his fifth rehab game overall and he’s now 1-for-12 with a single three strikeouts.

A-Rod’s current rehab track calls for a late-July return to the Yankees, but he’s going to have to hit minor league pitching first. And there’s also that report that Major League Baseball is expected to announce a bunch of Biogenesis-related suspensions shortly after the All-Star break. A-Rod is a key player in that case and will speak to MLB investigators on Friday according to the New York Daily News.

Yankees third basemen have registered a combined .229/.291/.310 batting line so far in 2013.

    Is a “report” that someone went hitless in a baseball game something that you call journalism? You actually want to credit someone with sharing that information on Twitter when it’s in a boxscore? Ridiculous.

      Kind of silly, I guess, but Sweeny Murti was the first one to get it out there and I’m not at the game. Seems right to credit him. We try to give as many hat tips to the news-breakers as possible.

      If you really care, this kind of thing is ridiculously easy to find.

      I’m really getting tired of the fucking stupidity, laziness, and whining displayed on this site. Do you need Drew to puree the vegetables for your dinner and change your diaper afterwards, too?

    This Alex was so 2004. Alex Torres has pitched 26 innings, struck out 33, and allowed 6 hits. His ERA is .35, and his only run allowed was a broken bat bloop 2 out hit. He should be an All-Star, and he is on pace to shatter Rodneys ERA for a reliever. Dude is money!

    Enjoy not playing in the majors, AFraud. You’ll be stuck in Florida for a while with that GF from WWE that can shoot you in the ass with whatever drug/device you want.
    Seacrest out!

    How’s he supposed to perform with no ‘roids and a ‘roid suspension hanging over his head all Occam’s Razor like? Of course he went o fer. What’s a self respecting Centaur to do?

    • soberlyf - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:17 PM

      Plenty of players, including ones you adore, have done ‘roids, they simply didn’t get caught. and lots of guys who used to juice-up, came back to hit clean..David Ortiz for one…Giambi…

    Hey, atleast a 12 year old can go home and tell his mom he struck out A-Rod.

    • soberlyf - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:18 PM

      I’m the last MLB fan on earth that doesn’t take pot-shots at ARod and even I thought that was funny!

  6. melsh13 - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:27 PM

    And to think that they missed their chance at Jeff Francoeur.

  7. cocheese000 - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:11 PM

    He really is done. My jump to conclusion mat told me.

    A: It’s his ‘Spring Training’, so relax.

    B: It’s Selig messing with ARod’s head, which seems to be the new National Past Time(tm).

    C: Innocent until proven guilty. How many 39 year old 3rd basemen are there playing now-a-days? Come to think of it, how many players are 39 or older now?

    I have to give ARod credit for his willingness to move to 3rd base. He could have gone down in the history books as one of the top 5 short stops in MLB history. He’s no Saint, but then again he’s not the infinity sized villan that he being made out to be either. He has a BIG EGO. When you are (or were) as gifted as he is (was) the BIG EGO comes with it, being fed by all the people that stand to make a s#@t load of money off him.

    Let’s revisit this in 3-4 weeks. If he lost his swing, so be it. If he comes around and can hit, great. Even at a .250 average he would be a major lift for the NY Yankees.

    HELLO, MEDIA. NOBODY CARES ABOUT ALEX RODRIGUEZ ANYMORE. HE IS YESTERDAY. GIVE IT A REST ALREADY. WRITE ARTICLES ABOUT TROUT AND HARPER AND MACHADO AND PUIG AND HARVEY AND MILLER AND QUIT WRITING ABOUT YOUR WASHED UP YANKEES.

    SORRY FOR THE CAPITAL LETTERS BUT YOU ARE ANNOYING US AND WE NEED TO GET THIS THROUGH YOUR THICK SKILLS.

    TWEET THAT.

    • schniz61 - Jul 10, 2013 at 1:34 AM

      THICK SKULLS. NO MORE AROD.

    No hurry, he won’t play in a meaningful game again until next May, if ever.
