Alex Rodriguez has been medically cleared to start a rehab assignment on July 1, according to the New York Daily News.

Rodriguez, who has been linked to Anthony Bosch and his Biogenesis clinic in Florida, has missed the entire season after undergoing surgery to his left hip in January. The 37-year-old Rodriguez hit .272 with 18 home runs and 57 RBIs last season.

From the Daily News:

Yankees GM Brian Cashman told the Daily News Sunday that while he hasn’t discussed an exact date for A-Rod’s return to game action, “it sounds like it’s on schedule. He’s been running, throwing, fielding, and I know it’s approaching. It’s coming.”

Rodriguez would begin his minor league rehab assignment in Tampa, then would presumably move up the line, according to Cashman, to “Trenton, then Scranton. Normally, position players need 50-75 at-bats, or 20 games.”

Rodriguez was originally slated to be sidelined until the All-Star break.
