TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez homered twice and played seven innings in the field for the second straight day in an extended spring training game on Tuesday.
Sidelined since undergoing right hip surgery on March 9, the third baseman could rejoin the Yankees for Friday night's game at Baltimore. A-Rod said a return date has not been finalized.
"I have no idea about Friday," said Rodriguez, who is scheduled to play in another extended spring training game Wednesday. "I'm feel good."
Rodriguez went 3-for-6 with two homers to center — including one that cleared a 40-foot high batter's eye — and also lined a single. He had two plays at third, fielding a grounder and making a spin move to throw out Philadelphia minor leaguer Nerio Rios at first.
Rodriguez declined to comment on a book released Monday that makes the case that the three-time AL MVP most likely used steroids in high school and may have taken HGH while with the Yankees.
