DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez slid for the first time since hip surgery, going 1-for-5 with a walk in a New York Yankees extended spring training game.
The three-time AL MVP says he doesn't know whether he'll rejoin the Yankees on Friday in Baltimore.
He singled up the middle as a designated hitter Wednesday, and in the third inning he walked and slid into second on an infield grounder.
"The slide was good. No problems. I feel good," the third baseman said.
Rodriguez had hip surgery March 9 and has been on the disabled list since the start of the season.
