Cashman says he regrets A-Rod comment
Cashman says owner Hal Steinbrenner told him he spoke withRodriguez on Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., and reiterated that injury information should be announced by the team, not individual players on social media.
Cashman says Rodriguez did not get back to him after he tried to contact the slugger Tuesday night.
The star third baseman tweeted Tuesday evening that his hip surgeon had cleared him to play in rehabilitation games, a move that angered Cashman because Rodriguez has not been cleared by team doctors yet. Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com that ''Alex should just shut ... up,'' punctuating his comment with a profanity.
