The Yankees have cleared Alex Rodriguez for rehab games in the minor leagues.A-Rod will play Tuesday night for Low-A Charleston.  It is a home game for the RiverDogs, who will host Rome.

A-Rod and general manager Brian Cashman last week had a back and forth public feud, where Cashman told the controversial third baseman to shut the f-up and that when the Yankees want to clear a player they will do so, not have a specialist do it, like Rodriguez stated in a tweet.  Rodriguez said his hip doctor Bryan Kelly had cleared him for play.

A-Rod is expected to play around three innings in his rehab game for Charleston.
