Alex Rodriguez starts for RiverDogs
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez made a rehab start on Tuesday with the Charleston RiverDogs as they hosted the Rome Braves at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park.
Rodriguez started at third base and is expected to play a minimum of three innings. Rodriguez is rehabbing a hip injury.
A three-time American League MVP, Rodriguez was the first overall pick by the Seattle Mariners in the 1993 MLB Amateur Draft.
In 19 seasons in the Majors, the right-handed hitter has amassed 647 homers, 1,950 RBI, 512 doubles, and scored 1,898 runs. However, his legacy remains somewhat tainted by admissions of using performance-enhancing drugs.
