A-Rod could be headed to RailRiders
He has gone just about everywhere a rehabbing player can go in the New York Yankees' farm system.
But where he'll go next, even Alex Rodriguez doesn't know.
The Yankees third baseman went hitless in his latest start for Double-A Trenton in Reading on Tuesday night, and he told reporters afterward that he will not play anywhere tonight.
Where he'll head Thursday to continue rehabbing his surgically repaired hip, however, is still up in the air, he said.
All Rodriguez said after the 6-3 Trenton loss to the Fightins is that he'd be in uniform Thursday, either for the Thunder or the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, who open the second half with the first game of a four-game set against Louisville at PNC Field.
Trenton also returns home and will host New Hampshire on Thursday.
Rodriguez was 0 for 3 with an RBI on Tuesday night. It was the second straight night he played seven innings in the field. On the rehab, he is 5 for 28 with a home run and six RBIs.
Rodriguez said after Monday night's game that he felt better than he had on any game during his first two stops with the Yankees' full-season Class A teams, Charleston and Tampa. He also said he hopes to return to the Yankees "in six days."
Neither the Yankees or the RailRiders have commented on the plans for Rodriguez.
If he does head to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after a brief stint with the Thunder, it will be Rodriguez's second stint with the franchise, after a two-game stint in 2011. He went 2 for 5 then.
It will also be the RailRiders' second high-publicity rehab assignment in the last two weeks. Shortstop and captain Derek Jeter spent four games with the team from July 6-10.
