Alex Rodriguez crushed a homer in the Minors, flipped his bat like it's business as usual
Alex Rodriguez, who went on the DL back on May 3, has been rehabbing in Double-A Trenton this week. The Yankees DH went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's game and on Wednesday, likely A-Rod's last appearance before rejoining the Yanks, he was set to have two at-bats against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. He grounded out in the first inning and then, in the second, hit a 400-foot blast to center field:
That bat flip seemed to say: "Goodbye, Minor Leagues. I've had fun with your bat dogs, but I'm taking my 692 home runs back to the Majors."
A-Rod also spoke to MLB.com's Matt Kardos postgame:
"In all of my at-bats, I felt good," said Rodriguez. "I told the guys yesterday that I felt good, surprisingly. I saw the ball pretty well. I made good contact, and that last one felt good."
The 14-time All-Star is expected to be activated for the Blue Jays-Yankees finale on Thursday. Until next time, Trenton Thunder.
