Alex Rodriguez injury: Yankees 3B will continue rehab, according to Brian Cashman

Stephen Dunn

Rodriguez will continue his rehab and could see simulated game action within a week. More statements from Cashman here.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters that injured third baseman Alex Rodriguez (quad) will continue his rehab and that he hopes Rodriguez will be able to play in a simulated game as soon as Aug. 1. Rodriguez had already completed his rehab assignment and was expected to be taken off of the disabled list on Monday, but that was pushed back following reports that Rodriguez was feeling "tightness" in his quad.

But Rodriguez got a second opinion and the doctor reportedly told him that he could see no injury in the leg from an MRI. This second opinion was not approved by the Yankees, but Cashman would not comment on Thursday whether or not he was angry over the matter or if Rodriguez would be disciplined.

All of this news comes amid reports that Rodriguez could be facing a lifetime ban over the Biogenesis scandal that has already gotten Ryan Braun suspended for the rest of the 2013 season.
