David Dahl was one of fantasy baseball’s most-coveted darlings heading into the season after his sterling debut last year.
Unfortunately, Dahl has not been able to shake a rib injury, which has kept him out of the Rockies lineup all season. Manager Bud Black doesn’t think Dahl will be making his season debut anytime soon.
Along with mentoring the young players, Rodriguez will serve as a councilman to Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Rodriguez not returning to the field as a player is nothing new, but that Rodriguez would be welcome back to spring training anytime.
Alex is also free to do as he pleases, if he wants to try and keep playing, Cashman said. We welcome the opportunity for him to impact our young players at spring training. Alex would work directly for Hal (Steinbrenner).
All the parameters have been vocalized and they remain the same from last year. He’s got a life to live too, and I’m sure he’s going to have a lot of opportunities in broadcasting, in business. People will be tugging him in a lot of different directions.
Sorry Yankees fans, you will have to get used to seeing A-Rod hanging around Yankee Stadium without the pinstriped uniform.
