Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees left little to the imagination: Both parties expect he'll return to their lineup Monday.
In a radio appearance on New York's WFAN, Rodriguez said he expects to be in their lineup against the Texas Rangers, which would meet his goal of being game-ready by the conclusion of his rehab assignment, and he reiterated that hope before a Wednesday workout.
This time, unlike his rogue tweet that announced he'd be beginning a rehab assignment, Rodriguez's pronouncement was largely corroborated by the Yankees.
"That's the hope," general manager Brian Cashman told ESPN New York. "Let's get through the weekend and see where he is at and see if he is major league able."
