Rodriguez Has First Yankee Workout Since Steroid Admission

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez has completed an uneventful
workout with the New York Yankees, his first since a news
conference in which he claimed his cousin repeatedly injected him
from 2001-03 with a mysterious substance from the Dominican

The star third baseman spent most of Wednesday's workout on a
back field behind the first-base stands at Steinbrenner Field. He
fielded grounders, hit in an indoor cage, taking batting practice
on the back field, and finished with bunting practice in the
bullpen and conditioning on the field behind the third-base stands.

Rodriguez did not comment on his workout. Yankees captain Derek
Jeter, who watched Tuesday's news conference from a front-row seat, said he was disappointed that A-Rod tested positive but remained
supportive of his troubled teammate.
