“Tentative” A-Rod may not be activated Thursday
Alex Rodriguez said he felt “a little tentative, a little hesitant” playing the field last night at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and the Yankees are willing to go at Rodriguez’s speed as far as activating him.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Rodriguez will travel to Minneapolis after playing tonight for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Durham, but if he isn’t activated Thursday, the Yankees would be fine with just having him work out for a day or two.
“Our plans right now are still to bring him to Minnesota tomorrow if everything goes OK,” Girardi said. “We may not activate him. We may just have him go through some things for a couple of days, then wait a couple of days to activate him.”
