Four months after undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is able to "run slowly" on a treadmill, manager Joe Girardi told reporters on Saturday, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.

Rodriguez is recovering from a torn labrum and impingement in his left hip and is expected to return shortly after July's All-Star break.

With Kevin Youkilis as their starting third baseman, the injury-plagued Yankees have gotten off to a 5-5 start. Rodriguez is one of five key players on the disabled list, joined by Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Michael Pineda.

The 37-year-old played 122 games last season, hitting .272 with 18 home runs and posting his lowest OPS (.783) since 1995. He particularly struggled in the postseason, notching just three hits and striking out 12 times in 25 at-bats.
