Alex Rodriguez says if all goes well he’ll be ready to rejoin the Yankees on Monday in Texas.
Yes, Monday. As in five days from now, when New York starts a four-game series against the Rangers.
“I will be back on Monday and I’m very excited,” A-Rod told WFAN radio’s Mike Francesa on Wednesday.
A-Rod, who could face a suspension for his alleged part in baseball’s latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal, has been rehabbing from offseason hip surgery and is scheduled to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.
Rodriguez also told Francesa that his camp hasn’t made a plea deal with MLB regarding a possible suspension stemming from the league’s investigation into Biogenesis, the closed anti-aging clinic accused of distributing PEDs to athletes.
“There’s no deal that I’ve instructed anyone to do at this point,” he said.
I wonder how Brian Cashman and the Yankees feel about this declaration from Alex?
