A-Rod Back On Field — At Yankees Minor League Complex

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Alex Rodriguez is back on the field for the first time since surgery on his left hip almost four months ago.

He joined a group of injured New York Yankees starters Monday at the team’s minor league complex. The 37-year-old third baseman ran, played catch and hit off a tee.

Rodriguez says it’s “like being 8 years old again when I first grabbed a bat.” He adds that it’s “pretty exciting” and he’s “really looking forward to getting back.”

Rodriguez had surgery Jan. 16 and could return to the Yankees after the All-Star break.
