NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Alex Rodriguez will start a second minor league injury rehabilitation assignment on Friday at Double-A Trenton, hoping to return to the New York Yankees before any suspension by Major League Baseball.

Rodriguez played a simulated game Thursday at the team’s spring training home, and New York said he will play for Trenton against Reading for two games through Saturday.

Trenton Thunder general manager Will Smith said he expects A-Rod to remain available Friday night.

“I don’t imagine I’d receive that phone call,” Smith told WFAN radio of a possible suspension coming down before game time. “You never know. But like I said, we’re going forward as it’s planned and scheduled, and if it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. (There’s) certainly a Thunder game going on tonight. You know, we’ll see how things go.”

Smith wasn’t sure whether A-Rod would DH or play at third base.
