The Yankees have announced Alex Rodriguez has been assigned a second minor league injury rehabilitation assignment Friday and Saturday with their Double-A affiliate Trenton. The Yankees' plans could change if Rodriguez is suspended as part of Major League Baseball's Biogenesis investigation.

USA Today reported Wednesday that Commissioner Bud Selig is prepared to place a lifetime suspension on Rodriguez. His attorney, David Cornwell, has said he will appeal any suspension.
