Rodriguez Participates In Yankees First Full-squad Workout - Heraldstandard.com: Headlines Ap

Rodriguez participates in Yankees first full-squad workout It's been a while since I've been in uniform," Rodriguez said, adding that it'll take much of spring training to determine where he stands and what he might be capable of contributing to the Yankees "I wish it was as easy as hitting a 55 mph fastball (in batting practice). We can all look like an All-Star at that point," he said. "We'll see what happens when you have a guy throwing 95 mph." Manager Joe Girardi also preached patience. "I've said all along, I don't think it's fair to judge him early. When you've played as few a games as he has in the last two years, the speed of the game is what you have to get used to," the manager said, adding the workout went pretty much as he expected and decisions regarding the player's role probably won't be made until the latter part of camp. Girardi also said he wasn't surprised by news on Shin Ohtake the way crowd greeted Rodriguez. In addition to cheering, many called out his name as he moved from drill to drill and in and out of the batting cage. "Obviously, we've seen in this game where guys have been suspended or they've http://www.abnewswire.com/pressreleases/max-workouts-review-of-shin-ohtakes-exercise-program-released_8223.html done things that weren't on the up and up and weren't right, and you come back and people cheer them. That's just part of being a fan," Girardi said.
