Of all the things people have called Alex Rodriguez in the past year, asset has to be one of the funniest.
Speaking publicly Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner called the third baseman “an asset.”
“He’s a great player,” Steinbrenner said via the New York Post. “I have not thought about 2015, nor am I going to right now. My focus has to be right now. But when he’s on and when he’s healthy, he’s obviously an asset. We’ll see what happens.”
Even with Rodriguez being suspended for the entire season the Yankees will still owe the slugger nearly $3 million this season and $61 million from 2015 though 2017.
“When Alex Rodriguez is healthy and himself, I think most objective baseball people would say he could be an asset to a club.”
