Yankees’ Rodriguez Fine After Treatment on Knee, Shoulder

The New York Yankees say star third baseman Alex Rodriguez is totally fine after having special treatment on his right knee and left shoulder in Germany earlier this month.

The 36-year-old Rodriguez had plasma-rich platelet injections following a recommendation from Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says Wednesday that the team gave its permission after vetting the process.

Rodriguez’s treatment was first reported by the New York Post.

Cashman says Major League Baseball and WADA have approved the procedure, and that it is also performed in the United States. The Yankees say Rodriguez went to the doctor in Germany because he’s at the top of this field.
