Yankees Planning to Discipline Alex Rodriguez?

A person familiar with the Yankees’ deliberations says the team intends to discipline Alex Rodriguez for seeking a second medical opinion on his injured leg without New York’s permission.

The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized, said the type of penalty had not yet been determined. A fine appeared to be the most likely option.

The person also said that during a conference call Thursday, the Yankees and Rodriguez agreed to a timetable that would have the third baseman resume minor league rehabilitation games or simulated games around Aug. 1.

Rodriguez, who has been sidelined since hip surgery in January, issued a statement earlier in the day saying he wanted to be activated for Friday’s homestand opener against Tampa Bay.
