Brian Cashman Has Some Harsh Words for Alex Rodriguez

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The fractured relationship between Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees took another hit after general manager Brian Cashman responded to a tweet sent out by the third-baseman.

"Visit from Dr. [Bryan] Kelly over the weekend, who gave me the best news - the green light to play games again!" Rodriguez tweeted.

Cashman was not too pleased to hear A-Rod was making his injury updates publicly.

"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."

Rodriguez has yet to play in 2013 as he recovers from hip surgery.

On Wednesday morning, Rodriguez released a statement through a spokesman that "the tweet was pure excitement," and that he is working hard to get back on the field for the team.

The 37-year-old Rodriguez has been linked to the Biogenesis clinic investigation going on with Major League Baseball and could face a 100-game suspension.

The Yankees still owe Rodriguez more than $100 million through 2017.
