Rodriguez, who will turn 38 in less than two weeks, is trying to return from a second hip surgery. He has not played in a major league game since the 2012 postseason in which he went 3-for-25 with 12 strikeouts. He was pinch-hit for and benched during the playoffs.

According to reports Rodriguez said he has checked off every box on his rehab, except breaking up a double play.  Rodriguez just worked out Wednesday morning but said he felt fit enough to appear in a game

Looming above all of Rodriguez's future plans is the Biogenesis scandal. Rodriguez is expected to be suspended when the penalties come down. There is no set date when they will be announced, though they are expected at some point in the second half of the season.

If that were the case, it may help the Yankees with their goal of getting under $189 million to take advantage of financial incentives in the collective bargaining agreement.  For every 50 games that Rodriguez would be suspended, the Yankees would save around $7.5 million.
