Alex Rodriguez returns to baseball after serving a year long suspension. Rodriguez has 654 career home runs and the Yankees need him to hit. The Yankees were 13th in the league in runs scored , and the bat is needed. Rodriguez issued a letter apologizing for his actions and said he was looking forward to putting the matter behind him. We are not exactly sure what A-Rod still has left but it will be interesting and exciting to find out. Rodriguez hit 7 homers in 44 games in 2013 , the last time he played. If he can hit at that pace he would bring some pop to the lineup. Regardless of anything A-Rod is a veteran presence in the clubhouse and pitchers still respect his power. Rodriguez will find at bats at DH , and potentially both corner infield positions. Joe Girardi has committed to him being on the roster but said he will have to prove himself for at bats.
