New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez(notes) has been on the disabled list since July 8 due to surgery on his right knee to repair a torn meniscus. Yankees GM Brian Cashman tells ESPN that it is looking like he'll be back in the lineup for the Bronx Bombers in the second week of August.
Rodriguez is currently in Miami rehabbing the knee, the site notes. "He's in a pool. He's on a bike," Cashman told ESPN. "[He's] still got a little bit of a limp, which is normal. But I'd be looking at him [returning] maybe the second week of August, you know, at the earliest for me. That's just us being conservative. I think we can push it and get him back sooner but, why? Our offense is strong."
Rodriguez is batting .295 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs in 80 games.
