You think the Alex Rodriguez Circus is beginning to weigh on the nerves of Yankees general manager Brian Cashman?

I would say, probably, yes. And, while its likely there had been frustration with the aging $30 million man, its now festering in public.

When asked about A-Rod’s recent tweet that indicated he received a doctor’s approval to start playing rehab games on July 1, Cashman reportedly told ESPN New York:

“You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, [we will],” Cashman told ESPN New York. “Alex should just shut the f— up. That’s it. I’m going to call Alex now.”

A-Rod, who hasn’t played yet this season, and was benched for the team’s final two playoff games last season due to poor production – is in the rehab process following hip surgery.

Funny thing is, even if the Yankees medical staff cleared A-Rod to return next week or in two weeks, he still may not play.

A-Rod was one of a handful of players reportedly tied to baseball’s most recent drug-cheating scandal involving a company called Biogenesis.

ESPN has previously reported that several players, including Rodriguez, could face 100 game suspensions if its determined they violated the league’s PED policy.
