A-Rod Goes 0-2 In First Rehab Assignment


A-Rod strike out

Alex Rodriguez made his first appearance in a baseball game this season with the Yankees Single-A affiliate in Charleston.

A-Rod seems to already be in post-season form going 0-2 with a weak ground out to third and striking out looking.

ESPN went big and broke into SportsCenter for a live look at A-Rod’s return.  It’s like no one remembers that the last time we saw Rodriguez in last year’s playoffs, he went 3-for-25 (.120) with no RBI in seven playoff games and was getting benched for Raul Ibanez.

Don’t worry Yankee fans, A-Rod will be back in the Bronk soon enough so you can see those slow rollers in person.
