      Alex Rodriguez: Won't play for remainder of 2016 season

      Alex Rodriguez's publicist said Monday that he does not intend to play for another team this season, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.There had been speculation that Rodriguez was drawing interest from a few teams in the wake of his release by the Yankees, but it does not appear that any of the talk will come to fruition in 2016. However, there remains an outside shot Rodriguez could play before this season comes to a close, and he has yet to say whether he will return next season. Before being released by the Yankees, Rodriguez owned a .200/.247/.351 line.

      Alex Rodriguez: Drawing interest from Marlins

      Alex Rodriguez is drawing interest from the Marlins, MLB.com reports."We're putting our list together of options. [Rodriguez] is available, so he will be on that list," Marlins manager Don Mattingly told reporters. "We'll see where that goes." Many expected Rodriguez's career to be over following his release from the Yankees, but Rodriguez was evasive when confronted by reporters about if he had plans to retire. The Marlins have a need for offense after Giancarlo Stanton's injury, and Rodriguez may be the best available at this point, so there is at least some logic to the idea.

      Alex Rodriguez: Released by Yankees

      Alex Rodriguez was officially released by the Yankees on Saturday and he will assume an advisory role within the organization.Saturday night's game was Rodriguez's last with the Yankees, and likely his last as a professional. He will remain in the organization, as they still owe him around $25 million, but after the 2017 season, he will be free to do something else. Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin were recalled from Triple-A on Saturday as the Yankees continue the youth movement, and prospect Gary Sanchez figures to see the bulk of the playing time at DH going forward.

      Yankees' Alex Rodriguez: Collects RBI double, plays third base in final game

      Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with an RBI double during Friday's 6-3 win over the Rays.In what's expected to be the final game of his MLB career, Rodriguez was able to at least end a tumultuous season on a high note, as the two-bagger marked his first extra-base hit since June 5. Though Rodriguez had previously served as the designated hitter throughout this season, manager Joe Girardi allowed the three-time MVP to come out for the ninth inning at third base, the position he had manned for much of his 13-year tenure with the New York Yankees. Rodriguez is expected to be formally released by the Yankees on Saturday as the team aims to clear up a roster spot for one of their top prospects in Aaron Judge, but the 41-year-old will still stick around with the organization in an advisory capacity through the end of 2017.

      Yankees' Alex Rodriguez: Won't return to lineup until Thursday

      Alex Rodriguez, who is not in the lineup Tuesday, will not return to the order until Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.Although Rodriguez's final game in a Yankee uniform is approaching, manager Joe Girardi remains adamant about giving his younger players some playing time and leaving the veteran on the bench. The New York Yankees will be facing lefty Drew Pomeranz on Wednesday, but Rodriguez will not be in the lineup on that day, either. Instead, he'll be back for his final game against the Red Sox in Fenway on Thursday when he faces knuckleballer Steven Wright.

      Yankees' Alex Rodriguez: Will retire after Aug. 12 game

      The New York Yankees announced Sunday that Alex Rodriguez would play his final game with the team Aug. 12 against the Rays before joining the organization in an advisory role through the end of the 2017 season, MLB.com reports.Manager Joe Girardi admitted last week that Rodriguez likely wouldn't be utilized much over the final two months of the season while the team looked to make room for younger options, prompting the franchise to reassess the 41-year-old's future with the Yankees while he remained under contract through the remainder of the 2017 campaign. Rodriguez, who is still due approximately $27 million over the remainder of his contract, will be unconditionally released after the Aug. 12 game, but he'll still stick around the organization as an instructor and special advisor through Dec. 31, 2017 while receiving his full payment. The 14-time All-Star has made just seven appearances since July 23, but with his retirement on the horizon, expect Girardi to give Rodriguez at least a few more starts over the next five days to close out his career. Once Rodriguez is out of the picture, the Yankees will proceed with their youth movement and hand most of the at-bats at DH to Gary Sanchez.

      Yankees' Alex Rodriguez: Will see reduced role down the stretch

      Manager Joe Girardi acknowledged Tuesday that Alex Rodriguez would likely notice a reduced role over the remainder of the season, ESPN.com's Wallace Matthews reports. "In maybe the near future, do I see [Rodriguez] getting a ton of at-bats? No, I probably don't because of some of the changes that we're possibly going to make here,'' Girardi said. "We're going to take a look at probably some younger players here a little bit, see if we can add to some of the struggles we've had offensively and see if they can be some big bats in the lineup.''After Carlos Beltran was traded to the Rangers on Monday, there was some speculation that Rodriguez might earn more frequent starts at DH over the final two months of the season as he pursues 700 career home runs, but it doesn't seem as though Girardi is willing to give the 41-year-old that opportunity. Though Rodriguez came back from a one-year ban to slug 33 homers in 2015, he's been a disaster at the plate throughout this season, slashing just .204/.252/.356 with nine long balls and a career-worst 27.8 percent strikeout rate over 234 plate appearances. In interviews with New York media Tuesday, Rodriguez himself seemed resigned to the reality that the New York Yankees aren't eager to cater to him while they make room for some of their younger bats, with well-regarded 23-year-old catcher Gary Sanchez being the first of the team's major prospects to join the big club. Rodriguez is under contract through the end of the 2017 season and has more than $20 million remaining on his contract, and with the Yankees seemingly viewing him as a sunk cost at this point, it wouldn't be surprising if the team opted to release him later this season if another move needs to be made in order to bring a prospect onto the 40-man roster.

      Yankees' Alex Rodriguez: Could be in line for more playing time

      Alex Rodriguez could be in line for more regular starts following the trade of Carlos Beltran, the New York Post reports.The New York Yankees had slotted Beltran into the DH role frequently, so his departure would appear to create a spot for A-Rod, who has otherwise mostly been relegated to bench duty of late. Manager Joe Girardi was noncommittal about a regular role for the 41-year-old, but the situation may become clearer when the Yankees return to an AL park Wednesday.
