Report: A-Rod expected to publicly apologize when he reports for camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is expected to address the media and publicly apologize when he reports to spring training in February, according to USA Today MLB columnist Bob Nightengale. Rodriguez was suspended for the 2014 season for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.

The 39-year-old Rodriguez has been in the media spotlight plenty as of late. He reportedly met with new Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred to "get on the same page," according to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.

He tried to also reach out to the Yankees to apologize for his role in the Biogenesis scandal, but was told to wait until spring training, according to the New York Daily News. The Yankees are also looking to void milestone bonuses in Rodriguez's contract, per the Daily News.

Report: Yankees looking to void milestone bonuses for A-Rod
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Yankees are looking to void milestone bonuses in Alex Rodriguez 's contract, according to the New York Daily News.

When Rodriguez signed his deal with the club in 2007, it contained bonuses as Rodriguez tied or passed the top home run hitters. Rodriguez, who has 654 career home runs, is just six away from tying Willie Mays, which would trigger a $6 million bonus. He is also set to receive an additional $6 million once he ties Babe Ruth, and another $6 milliion if he ties Hank Aaron.

The team, however, now views those bonuses as worthless due to his 2014 suspension. The team will argue that these bonuses were signed under false pretenses. The club is apparently willing to fight the player's union over the decision should Rodriguez file a grievance. 

Rodriguez, who hasn't played since 2013, has already found it difficult to mend the fences with his team. Rodriguez proposed a meeting with the club where he would publicly apologize for his actions last season, but the team declined the offer. "This is a relationship that is never going to be repaired," one source told the Daily News.

Report: Yankees decline reconciliation with Alex Rodriguez
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After meeting with new Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred to clear the air over his year-long suspension in 2014, Alex Rodriguez also reached out to the Yankees to set up a meeting, but was turned down, reports the New York Post.

Rodriguez requested to meet with the Yankees to apologize for his role in the Biogenesis scandal, but was told to wait until spring training. Reports also surfaced that Rodriguez is looking noticeably thinner compared to recent seasons, a source told the New York Post.

Rodriguez is set to report to spring training Feb. 25.

Report: Alex Rodriguez has private meeting with new commissioner
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez reportedly met with new Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred to "get on the same page" with him and the rest of the MLB, according to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post. Rodriguez came unaccompanied by any MLBPA representatives or personal attorneys, per the paper.

Rodriguez, 39, was suspended for the entire 2014 season due to his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. He hit .244/.348/.423 in 156 at-bats in 2013. He has been training with Barry Bonds in the Bay Area, with designs on starting at third base for the Yankees in 2015. However, New York brought in Chase Headley to play third and general manager Brian Cashman has been adamant about Rodriguez playing more of a DH role this season.

Rodriguez is due $61 million over the next three seasons, along with several home run-based performance bonuses.

Report: Alex Rodriguez working out with HR king Barry Bonds
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who sat out in 2014 due to a season-long suspension, has been training with Barry Bonds in the Bay Area, according to SFGate.com. Bonds is the all-time leader in home runs with 762.

Rodriguez recently posted two photos on Instagram of him swinging a bat with the caption: "Starting the year in the cage.” The photos were taken in San Rafael, Calif., at the Future Prospects facility owned and run by Charles Scott, who is Bonds’ friend and former Arizona State teammate. Not only has Bonds worked with Rodriguez at this facility, but also major leaguers Michael Morse, Pablo Sandoval, Dexter Fowler and Brandon Crawford.

Sources told John Shea of SFGate.com that the 39-year-old Rodriguez looked good after training for a few weeks at the facility.
