A-Rod to take the field

aroidfieldAfter going 1 for 6 in an extended spring training game today and hitting a Homer in Yesterday’s inter-squad game the next step for A-rod is to play in the field. Alex was the DH in an extended spring training game today against the Pittsburgh Pirates minor leaguers. Extended spring trainings liberal rules allowed A-rod to bat third in nearly every inning hitting a single in his final at bat and drawing a walk. Alex participated in fielding and agility drills before the game and spent some time in the cages. His next step may be playing 5 innings at third base tomorrow and then may be headed back to the big apple. The target date for Alex’s return remains May 15th but Manager Joe Girardi is taking a wait and see attitude. If things go well we may be seeing Alex as early as next week
