Analysis: Rodriguez signed a $275 million, 10-year contract with the team in December 2007 and a separate marketing agreement that called for $6 million payments for up to five milestone accomplishments designated by the Yankees. Each payment is due within 15 days of designation and is in exchange for rights such as using Rodriguez's name and image in selling licensed goods.

Chase Headley will be the Yankees' starting third baseman after agreeing to a $52 million, four-year deal.
Analysis: Cashman said during a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday that ''I can't expect Alex to be anything.'' adds: ''Even before the suspension, he wasn't the same player at third base on the defensive or offensive side.'' Rodriguez is coming off a season-long suspension for violations of baseball's drug agreement and labor contract and is owed $61 million over the final three seasons of his contract.

Analysis: Attorney Frank Quintero Jr., who represents Lazaro ''Laser'' Collazo in his defense against charges of conspiracy to distribute performance-enhancing drugs, told The Associated Press that the New York Yankees third baseman confessed to steroids use, according to Drug Enforcement Administration documents provided by the government to defense lawyers.

Analysis: Rodriguez was suspended by Major League Baseball for violations of the sport's drug agreement and labor contract and lost just over $22 million of his $25 million salary. The three-time AL MVP, who turns 40 on July 27, is owed $61 million by the Yankees over the next three seasons. New York general manager Brian Cashman said it's possible Rodriguez may see some time at first base.

Analysis: Rodriguez served a season-long suspension for violations of baseball's drug agreement and labor contract. The three-time AL MVP turns 40 on July 27. Turning his attention to next season at a Yankee Stadium news conference Monday, Girardi said he expected Rodriguez to be a starter at third but cautioned, ''We've got to see where he's physically at.'' Rodriguez is signed for three additional seasons for a total of $61 million.

Analysis: Newsday reported Sunday the investigation ended April 11 with no criminal charges against anyone except a tanning salon employee arrested months earlier after police said his DNA was found on the burglarized vehicle. However, the newspaper reported that Major League Baseball ignored repeated warnings that the records they sought had been stolen and that they were not to purchase them.
