A-Rod’s return near after knee surgery

Alex Rodriguez is ready for the next step in his rehabilitation program. Rodriguez got 13 at-bats in a simulated game and did situational work at third base at the Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday. He had right knee surgery July 11. A-Rod said the plan was for him to have an off day today and then play in a game Tuesday night at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The three-time A.L. MVP did not rule out rejoining the Yankees for the start of a series Thursday at Minnesota. “I’m looking forward to the next step and just staying one day at a time,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez played in games Friday and Saturday as the designated hitter for Class-A Tampa. “A good day,” he said Sunday. – Associated Press
