Bat flip, bat dog highlight Alex Rodriguez’s rehab start

null Baseball Alex Rodriguez probably had the best minor-league rehab start in the history of baseball.In Wednesday’s start with Double-A Trenton, Rodriguez met the Thunder’s famous bat dog, Derby, who showed a man with 692 career homers and 14 All-Star appearances that he’ll never be the main attraction at Trenton’s Arm & Hammer Park.

But the Yankees are surging as of late, winning 14 of their last 21 games, and a healthy, bat-flipping Rodriguez in the middle of the lineup would only help. It’s just too bad Derby can’t come with him.
