Hang on to your hats, folks. This Alex Rodriguez roller coaster just took another wild turn.
Dr. Michael Gross visited Mike Francesa‘s WFAN radio show Wednesday and said, after giving Rodriguez a second opinion, that he didn’t see anything on the MRI — including the Grade 1 mild quad strain that the Yankees had reported. Gross, out of the Hackensack University Medical Center, told the host that Rodriguez felt no pain in his groin, which to him signifies no injury.
Just last week, Rodriguez anticipated he would be back in the lineup this past Monday in Texas, but after complaints of a sore quad, he received the MRI that held up his return yet again.
Now, the return of one of the league’s most controversial players is no longer about when Rodriguez can return to the Yankees this season, but if he will ever return to baseball again.
Regardless of the status of Rodriguez’s groin, the sheer confusion around the Yankees third baseman is creating more questions than answers.
Wow. Mike Francesa interviewing doctor who examined ARod. Dr says ARod does NOT have a quad injury & he's fine.—
