From all accounts, Alex Rodriguez remains poised to rejoin the New York Yankees next week following the completion of his minor league rehab assignment. Surely the Yankees' subpar offense could use some help from the three-time MVP and 14-time All-Star. Assuming A-Rod plays the majority of the remaining 67 games, how much can the slugger help his team down the stretch?


A hole at third base?

Through the team's first 95 games, Yankees third basemen are hitting a combined .225 with 4 HRs, the team's worst position outside of shortstop.
