A-Rod making progress in rehab

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez is making progress in rehab after hip surgery and within two weeks could move his workouts from Colorado to the New York Yankees' spring training complex.

General manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday a firm date for the switch to Tampa, Fla., is not set. But he said the latest it would be is April 13.

Rodriguez had surgery in Vail, Colo., on March 9 and the Yankees don't expect the third baseman to rejoin the team until about May 15. Cashman added that the 3-time AL MVP has indicated he hopes to be back sooner.
