Live Updates, Analysis and Reaction of A-Rod's Return to Yankee Stadium

Josh SchochAnalyst IIIAugust 9, 2013

Alex Rodriguez will make his much-anticipated return to Yankee Stadium on Friday night against the Detroit Tigers, and New York Yankees fans will finally see their starting third baseman at home.

The Yankees have had arguably the worst third basemen all season—a position that had collectively hit a grand total of four home runs before A-Rod's return earlier this week.

Rodriguez has been better than expected after returning from his second hip surgery at the age of 38, batting .273 and posting an on-base percentage of .429 in his first three games.

After officially appealing his 211-game suspension due to the Biogenesis scandal, Rodriguez will likely finish out the 2013 MLB season while Bud Selig and Co. review his suspension.

A-Rod will finally make his 2013 Bronx debut, and it will be interesting to see if Yankees fans continue the trend of booing him before each at-bat, or if they embrace their former MVP among his off-the-field issues.
