Is Alex Rodriguez’s long-awaited and long-fretted-over return to the Yankees upon us at last? To hear, A-Rod tell it, yes, it might be. Here’s what Rodriguez told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Wednesday:
“I will be back on Monday and I’m very excited.”
It should be noted that A-Rod qualified that declaration by saying, “If I have a good weekend, I’ll be there in Texas.”
The Yankees on Monday begin a four-game road series against the Rangers. The team has yet to make any kind of announcement regarding Rodriguez’s status.
Rodriguez, of course, is working his way back from offseason hip surgery. While his ongoing minor-league rehab assignment hasn’t gone particularly well from a numbers standpoint, A-Rod did notch a long home run on Monday.
