Alex Rodriguez Breaks Hand In Yankees Loss – cliff notes

Alex Rodriguez, popularly known as @A-Rod, may not be able to play any more this season after fracturing his left hand.

Rodriguez was hit by an 88 mph change-up from Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning and went down immediately in considerable pain.  According to a statement by his team Yankees, Alex Rodriguez has a non-displaced fracture of the left hand. The team also remarked that there is no time defined for his return and A-Rod would be placed on the disabled list.

”You hate to see a guy go down on something freak like that,” Yankees’ first baseman Mark Teixeira said. ”I had a weird feeling it wasn’t good.”

The injured baseball player joins the Yankees’ list of injured players along with Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Michael Pineda, and Brett Gardner.

An American professional baseball third baseman with the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball, Alexander Emmanuel “Alex” Rodriguez was born on July 27, 1975 and previously played shortstop for the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers.

He is considered by many as one of the best players of baseball and is credited with the distinction of being the youngest player ever to hit 500 home runs, the youngest to hit 600, and having fourteen 100-RBI seasons in his career. In 2010, A-Rod became the all-time leader in home runs by a player of Hispanic descent when he hit two home runs to surpass the mark of Sammy Sosa (609 HRs).

He was first implicated for steroid use in Jose Canseco’s book, Vindicated: Big Names, Big Liars, and the Battle to Save Baseball. Canseco claimed to have introduced A-Rod to a trainer who was a steroid expert and supplier.

On February 7, 2009 it was reported by Sports Illustrated that the baseball player tested positive in 2003 for anabolic steroids, testosterone, and Primobolan. His name even appeared on a government-sealed list of 104 major-league players who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. On February 9, 2009, Alex Rodriguez admitted to making use of anabolic steroids while saying that he used them from 2001 to 2003 while playing for the Texas Rangers because of what he called “an enormous amount of pressure” to perform.

In 1993, he was drafted first overall by the Seattle Mariners and signed by Roger Jongewaard right out of high school. A-Rod was selected by both Sporting News and Associated Press as the Major League Player of the Year in 1996 and was just close to becoming the youngest MVP (Most Valuable Player) in the history of baseball but fell short to Juan González in one of the most controversial MVP elections. In the year 2000, the baseball player was selected as the Major League Player of the Year by Baseball America and finished 3rd in the BBWAA AL MVP voting.

In 2001-02, his 109 home runs were the most ever by an American League right-handed batter in consecutive season. During his last season with Texas (in 2003), he led the American League in home runs, runs scored, and slugging percentage to win his second consecutive Gold Glove Award. His career was on an all-time high when led the American League with 52 HR, 133 runs scored, and 393 total base in the 2001-02 season. In 2002, Rodriguez had a major league-best 57 HR, 142 RBIs and 389 total bases to become the first player ever to lead the majors in all three categories since 1984.

A-Rod gave anti-steroid speech at BaltimoreAlex Rodriguez or A-rod, who admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs in the past, gave a talk against steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs in a school in Baltimore.

Maryland congressional representative Elijah Cummings and state school Chief Dr. Nancy Grasmick, recently established an anti-steroid program called Powered by Me!.

According to Cong. Cummings, it was Alex Rodriguez himself who contacted him to offer his support for the anti-steroid program.

Rodriguez made his speech at the Milford Mill Academy in front of 500 student athletes last Tuesday.

In his speech, he acknowledged his mistake of taking a performance-enhancing drug. According to him, one of his missions in life is to turn a negative into a positive. He added that telling the truth felt liberating and good. Learning from our mistakes is something that we should be proud of, said Rodriguez.

The 12-time All star admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs from 2001 to 2003, while still with the Texas Rangers.

He recounted his steroids use and advised the students to avoid using similar drugs.

Cummings was pleased that Rodriguez supported the program by giving a speech. He expects that a speech coming from such a high profile person could make a strong impact on the youth on playing fair and healthy.

  PAST STEROID TEST RESULTS HAUNTING ALEX RODRIGUEZ

alex-rodriguez-steroidsAlex Rodriguez is a Major League Baseball player who used to play for the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners. He plays third baseman for the New York Yankees, is the youngest player to ever hit 500 home runs, has the most number of home runs and total bases, and is one of the best all-around players in present baseball. Rodriguez levels with the likes of baseball legends Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Pete Rose. So why is he in the news? Just recently, a sports magazine reported that the baseball superstar had tested positive for anabolic steroids back in 2003 while playing for the Rangers. That was the time when he started reaping the seeds that led to his status as the most-talented player in MLB. It was actually okay to be test positive since there was no penalty back then. It was supposedly a forgotten result except the master list for the players turned up during the BALCO investigation and the physical samples (which were supposed to be destroyed) were found by the FBI during a raid on the diagnostics laboratory that held the tests.

Rodriguez won’t be facing any disciplinary action, no legal sanction or any penalty unlike his baseball counterpart, Barry Bonds. Unfortunately, this positive test will most likely give him a negative impression among the Major League officials and teams, and will affect his position as the highest-paid player in baseball.
