Alex Rodriguez Coaching, Whitley Coming Up, Petit Going Down

Just a quick catch me up before the game tonight as Didi Gregorius is working with Alex Rodriguez at shortstop. The two went through some defensive drills this afternoon as A Rod looks to at least settle down Gregorius in the field.

It's also worth noting that Chase Whitley has been called up to start tonight while Gregorio Petit has been optioned to Triple-A. It looks more and more likely that after the start Jose Pirela will come up and join the big league club.


  1. This is something I have pointed out many times before. A-Rod took both Melky and Cano under his wing trying to get them away from their bad work habits but after a few days of working out with him they both gave it up as being too damn much work.
    Him working with Didi is not a big surprise to me and I think Drew would help him also, but he is still working on being a good 2nd baseman. Come to think about it maybe Drew is working out with them both.

    1. A Rod has never shied away from working with younger players in his Yankees career, especially the Latin players. No one ever mentions that much.
