MLB Injury News:
Alex Rodriguez has no intentions of retiring. This news comes after numerous sources had indicated that the third baseman may not be able to play again after the injury. Of course, most of the conversation has likely been posturing by either side (the Yankees and A-Rod). Rodriguez is knee-deep in another steroid scandal, and the New York Yankees do not want to pay the remaining $114 million on his contract.
Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports says Rodriguez does not plan to retire. He plans to work hard and come back from the injury as soon as possible. This new report comes from sources close to Rodriguez says Brown. Rodriguez's rebuttal of a potential end to his career is not surprising. There has yet to be any medical evidence made public (and there may never be any because of privacy laws) that Rodriguez's injury will cause his abilities to diminish to the point where he can no longer play. Brown quotes sources close to Rodriguez who expect just the opposite, actually.
"Alex is working diligently on his rehabilitation and looks forward to getting back on the field as soon as possible."

Rodriguez was named as a patient on a ledger kept in the offices of Biogenesis, a PED distribution clinic operating under the cover of an anti-aging clinic. He was among numerous players listed in the initial report. Since the news broke, unnamed sources have been speculating incessantly that the Yankees would find a way to get out from under A-Rod's contract. The most prevalent theory seemed to be that the team would say he could no longer play and present an insurance claim. Of course, this claim goes no where if Rodriguez returns this season or next.
Rodriguez has struggled over his last few seasons. He has combined for less home runs over his last two season (34 home runs) than he had in 2008 alone (35). Rodriguez has not played in more than 138 games since 2007. He's 37 years old and coming off his second hip surgery. Whether he can be productive is certainly a question, but to suggest his career is over is premature and irresponsible.
