New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez took another step in his rehab from right hip surgery, hitting three home runs in 49 swings during his first full batting practice session. A-Rod homered to right, left and deep left-center on Thursday.

He hit numerous liners and had several other balls land near or off the outfield fence.

Rodriguez also took grounders and made some throws, hit off a tee and swung at soft tosses.

The three-time AL MVP, who had surgery 5½ weeks ago in Colorado, hasn't ruled out rejoining the Yankees earlier than the projected date of May 15.
