Some News:

— If you are an Alex Rodriguez fan (or not) here’s some news from the New York Yankees. A-Rod has been cleared to play and will do a rehab game tomorrow with the Charleston Riverdogs (Class-A). This was the statement from A-Rod after the news broke:

“Had another good workout today and feel great and I’m excited to get back on the field tomorrow “

A-Rod will need at least a 20-day rehab and if all goes well he should be back around July 22, which is right before the trade deadline. The question is though…will A-Rod come too late to help the Yankees?
