Yanks GM angry at A-Rod Twitter update 

NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees are not seeing eye to eye on his hip injury.

The star third baseman tweeted Tuesday night that his hip surgeon has cleared him to play in rehabilitation games, a move that angered Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, according to ESPN.com.

“You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, (we will),” Cashman told the website. “Alex should just shut ... up,” the GM said, punctuating his comment with a profanity.

Cashman added that he planned to get in touch with Rodriguez right away.

Rodriguez had left hip surgery on Jan. 16 and has been working out since May at the Yankees’ Tampa complex. The three-time AL MVP took swings in a simulated-game situation for the first time on Monday.
