Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is making progress in his rehab program after right hip surgery. Even so, he is unlikely to rejoin the team before New York breaks spring training camp on April 1.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Monday that he doesn't anticipate Rodriguez rejoining the team in the next 10 days even though his rehab is going well.

Rodriguez had surgery on March 9. He is rehabbing in Vail, Colo., and is expected to be out until May.

In other news, Girardi said if the regular season were under way
that Xavier Nady would be the starting right fielder over Nick Swisher.

Girardi also confirmed that Chien-Ming Wang is scheduled to start the first exhibition game at the new Yankee Stadium on April 3 against the Chicago Cubs.
