Making progress, A-Rod set for more X-rays
NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez is scheduled to undergo more X-rays on his fractured left hand on Sunday, likely giving the Yankees a better idea of when the third baseman can return from the 15-day disabled list, on which he was placed on July 25.

Rodriguez underwent X-rays on Tuesday that showed progress, allowing him to begin strengthening exercises. If Sunday's X-rays show similar progress, Rodriguez could begin swinging a bat. Thus far, he has been limited to running and throwing a football or baseball to maintain his arm strength.

In Rodriguez's absence, Eric Chavez, Casey McGehee and Jayson Nix have gone a combined 26-for-68 (.382) with seven homers, 15 RBIs and 17 runs scored in 19 starts at third base.
