New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez hopes to return to the line-up against the Texas Rangers on Monday.

The 37-year-old has been in rehabilitation following hip surgery in the offseason, and has featured for a number of the Yankees’ affiliates.

Rodriguez represented Class A teams in South Carolina and Tampa, before playing for Class AA outfit Trenton in New Jersey. The next step comes tonight, when ‘A Rod’ will feature for Class AAA side Scranton/Wilkes Barre.

"I will be back on Monday and I'm very excited," he told WFAN Radio on Wednesday.

"If I have a good weekend, I'll be there in Texas."

Rodriguez hasn’t been at his best in the minor league games, going 5 for 28 with six strikeouts during the 10 matches. His first home-run came on Monday.

The third baseman hasn’t played a game in Major League Baseball since getting injured in the play-offs last October, but has to end his 20-day rehabilitation limit on Sunday.

And, if the Yankees don’t think Rodriguez is ready to return, he’d have to go on the disabled list.

Brian Cashman is hoping it doesn’t come to that however, and has his fingers crossed that the former Ranger will be able to play against his old side.

"That's the hope. Let's get through the weekend and see where he is at and see if he is major league able,” the general manager concluded.
