Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — New York Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi said he’s talked to Alex Rodriguez regarding the hormone allegations and his main concern is his health.

Girardi met with reporters on Tuesday to talk about the state of the team and his stance on Alex Rodriguez. A recent report by The Miami New Times linked A-Rod, along with several other Major Leaguers, with a now closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables that distributed human growth hormones.

“There’s really not a lot to talk about,” Girardi said. “I’ve had my discussions with Alex and I’ve talked about his rehab and how he’s doing. He’s making progress there. MLB has to go through it’s steps before any of us are really going to be aware of anything. My concern is getting him healthy.”

Rodriguez is recovering from offseason hip surgery, and might not even play the entire 2013 season.

The Yankees still owe the 37-year-old Rodriguez over $114 million over the next five years.
