Video: Alex Rodriguez connects for his third home run of the spring


It was tough to know what to expect from Alex Rodriguez coming off his year-long PED suspension, but he continues to show this spring that he’s still capable of doing some damage. Check out this home run against Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz earlier today:

That almost looked like a vintage A-Rod blast with the way the ball jumped off his bat. Impressive.

Rodriguez, who projects to be the primary DH for New York, finished the day 1-for-3 now batting .306 (11-for-36) with three home runs, a double and a .925 OPS across 15 games this spring. It would be pretty fun if he was one of the more productive bats in the Yankees lineup this season. C’mon, you can admit it too.
