People will see Alex Rodriguez hanging out with the Yankees in 2017, but it will be strictly as a special advisor.
The former New York slugger reiterated he will not be making a comeback this season, according to the New York Daily News.
“Alex is enjoying his time off and looking forward to heading to spring training to work with the young guys as he has said all along,” Rodriguez’s spokesman Ron Berkowitz said.
“He’s still a ways away. Still not able to (show) 100 percent exertion on the swing,” Black said, via the Denver Post.
Dahl, 23, was able to take live batting practice at the Rockies’ complex on Friday, but he did not swing a bat on Saturday.
“I kind of took a day off, I was pretty sore from yesterday,” Dahl said Saturday. “My muscles were sore. … My swing was a little bit shaky just because I hadn’t swung a bat in a while. The muscles just tightened up a little bit.”
Dahl carried a .315/.359/.500 slash line with seven home runs and 24 RBIs in 63 games last season. However, with Mark Reynolds holding down first base and Ian Desmond back from the disabled list, Dahl may find playing time hard to come by even after he regains his health.
Charlie Blackmon, who has emerged as one of the best outfielders in MLB, and Gerardo Parra are also currently starting in Colorado’s outfield.
It’s inevitable, based on past results, that Reynolds or Parra Cheap Jerseys Bulk will slow down, but for now, Dahl seems like a long shot for consistent playing time in the near future.
