You didn't hear this on A-Rod's Twitter: The injured $28 million man will begin his rehab assignment on Tuesday, the New York Yankees announced.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News says Rodriguez, who is recovering from hip surgery, got the all-clear and will play a minimum of three innings at third base for the Single-A Charleston RiverDogs. A-Rod's on a 20-day rehab stint, which would put him back in a Yankees uniform on July 22.

You might think all the A-Rod drama from last week is now behind us. Nope. People can critique him on the field now. That means we're just getting started.

Baseball season's in full swing. Don't miss a thing.
