TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez is getting his power swing back.
The New York Yankees third baseman, coming back from hip surgery in January, hit a ball to the base of the center-field fence and another on the warning track in left center off a minor league right-hander Monday as he continued taking simulated at-bats.
In sessions late last week, A-Rod primarily hit grounders mixed in with a couple liners.
Rodriguez also had an extensive baserunning session and did sliding drills on a mat in the outfield, two key steps before starting a minor league rehab assignment.
The Yankees have not said when Rodriguez will begin playing in games, but are hoping for after the All-Star break.
Derek Jeter, recovering from a broken left ankle, took batting practice with Rodriguez and Eduardo Nunez.
