One of the biggest questions surrounding the New York Yankees entering the 2012 season is what kind of production will New York get from Alex Rodriguez? The 36-year-old third baseman suffered through an injury-plagued 2011, playing in just 99 games and posting the worst power numbers of his career with only 16 home runs and 62 RBI.
Ten Spring Training games and 13 at-bats is hardly enough to declare A-Rod ready for a monster comeback season. So far, so good, however. Rodriguez has five hits in those 13 at-bats (a .385 average). More importantly to the Yankees three of those hits are for extra bases -- a home run and two doubles for a current slugging percentage of .769.
Here are a few other notables Spring Training stats for the Yankees at this point:
