TAMPA, Fla. — Alex Rodriguez will not report to spring training with the Yankees’ position players and will work on his rehabilitation from hip surgery in New York.
The third baseman is expected to be sidelined until at least the All-Star break following the Jan. 16 operation.
“I spoke to him last week. He was still barely, I think, on the crutches,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said during his opening spring-training remarks. “There’s not a lot that he can do here.”
