Tuesday afternoon, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez took to Twitter to provide the following update:

Needless to say, general manager Brian Cashman wasn't pleased. And that's an understatement. When asked about the tweet, here was Cashman's response:

"You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, [we will]," Cashman told ESPN New York. "Alex should just shut the f--- up. That's it. I'm going to call Alex now."

Wow. Talk about getting yourself into the doghouse via social media. And A-Rod just recently joined Twitter.

Monday, a report surfaced that A-Rod could begin minor-league rehab games July 1. All Cashman would say is that A-Rod is on schedule -- and wouldn't give an exact date.

Rodriguez, 37, hit .272/.353/.430 with 18 homers and 57 RBI last season in 122 games. Whenever he's able to get back, he's likely a pretty sizable offensive upgrade for the Yankees, as Yankees third basemen this season were hitting .246/.302/.337 with only four homers entering Monday.
