TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is set to play his first minor league game on a rehabilitation assignment.

The Yankees said Monday that Rodriguez is scheduled to start Tuesday night for Single-A Charleston in the South Atlantic League. Rodriguez is supposed to play at least three innings against Rome during the game in South Carolina.

Rodriguez has been working out at the Yankees' spring training complex in Florida this year while recovering from surgery on his left hip on Jan. 16. The three-time AL MVP turns 38 later this month.

Rodriguez has 647 career home runs. The Yankees have struggled this season while Rodriguez and several other stars have been on the disabled list.
