KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez will report Monday to the New York Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa, Fla., to continue his rehabilitation from right hip surgery.
Rodriguez had surgery March 9 in Vail, Colo., to remove an impingement in the joint and drain a cyst in the hip.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Rodriguez would stretch, do agility work, light jogging, take some grounders, hit off a tee and take soft toss swings on Monday.
With the Yankees opening a series Monday night at Tampa Bay, Girardi said he expects Rodriguez to be at the game.
The three-time MVP is expected to return to the lineup in May. Rodriguez hit .302 with an American League-leading .573 slugging percentage last season.
