NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees are not seeing eye to eye on his hip injury.

The star third baseman tweeted that his hip surgeon has cleared him to play in rehabilitation games, a move that angered Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, according to ESPN.com.

“You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, (we will),” Cashman told the website. “Alex should just shut ... up,” the GM said, punctuating his comment with a profanity.

Cashman added that he planned to get in touch with Rodriguez right away.

The general manager did not respond to calls from The Associated Press.

Rodriguez had hip surgery on Jan. 16 and has been working out since May in Tampa, Fla.
