News has sprung forth from the Twitter spring that Alex Rodriguez of insurance fraud speculative fame has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment down in Low-A Charleston. He is scheduled to play a minimum of three innings at third base.
Yankees announce A-Rod will begin rehab assignment tomorrow with Class-A Charleston. Scheduled to play min. of 3 innings at 3B.— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) July 1, 2013
With the Yankees in desperate, throwing $1 coins into a wishing well need for offense, this news could not have come at a better time. If everything goes well, A-Rod could be back up at the major league level right after the All-Star break. It's 2013 though, so let's not quite get our hopes up yet. We've already had two prime Yankees in Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira come back from injury and almost instantly go right back on the disabled list. Anything is possible this year, but this is still welcome news.
Now let the standard A-Rod bashing commence in 3...2...1... GO!
