A-Rod Hitless Again With Charleston


By Sports Department

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — It's no hits and no worries so far for Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.

The three-time AL MVP grounded out twice and turned a double play Wednesday night in the second game of his minor league rehab stint with Class-A Charleston.

Rodriguez, who is recovering from left hip surgery in January, also went hitless in his first game with the RiverDogs. But the third baseman, who turns 38 on July 27, isn't panicking about his slow start — yet.

"I don't mind if I save all my hits for New York," he said with a grin.

Rodriguez plans to work out at Riley Park on Thursday before leaving for the Yankees' spring training complex in Florida. He'll play for the Yankees' minor league team in Tampa on Friday.

He said Tuesday he likely would need each of the 20 allowed rehab games to get back in shape. It sure looked that way in his two nights in Charleston.
