Alex Rodriguez is currently on a 20-game rehab assignment from the Yankees. But apparently, that’s not cool with A-Rod. He skipped out on a rehab game yesterday with the Tampa Yankees (New York’s Single-A affiliate)- probably not the best decision for a guy who needs to keep as nose as clean as possible while he’s being investigated as part of Major League Baseball’s look into performance-enhancing drug company Biogenesis, and their possible ties to players like Rodriguez.
It ended up not mattering that much in the short term, as the game was postponed by rain, but that didn’t stop A-Rod’s decision from reportedly “infuriating” Yankees officials, as per the New York Post.
Given that a long-term suspension might be in the works for Rodriguez, he might want to re-think skipping out on any more future games, Single-A or not. If the MLB gets enough evidence on A-Rod, it could be a long time before he sees the diamond again.
