Alex Rodriguez: Professional Life and Career
Rodriguez made his debut appearance with Seattle Mariners at the age of 18 in 1994, playing shortstop in a game against the Red Sox at Fenway and in the next year, he had hit his first home run against Kansas City at Kingdome.
In 1995, he was assigned to Seattle’s Triple-A club and was made the starting shortstop of the team. He made it to the cover of Sports Illustrated, a headline saying “Short Story: Jeter and Rodriguez head up the finest group of short sports since WWII”.
From 1998 to 2000, he was selected as Players Choice AL Player of the Year. He also won his 2nd Silver Slugger Award and became the Major League Player of the Year by Baseball America. He had an average of .301, 42 home runs and 111 RBI. He signed with Texas Rangers in 2001, it was worth 252 million US dollars, the most lucrative sports contract ever in the history. Rangers pounded White Sox 16-6, and Rodriguez made his 200th and 201st home runs.
In 2003, he became the youngest player to hit 300 homers and won Babe Ruth Home Run Award. Texas wanted to move him and his contract out and made him available for the trade. He tested positive for performance-enhancing steroids. He was traded to the New York Yankees in 2004 and switched to third base. He had hit .286 with 36 home runs, 106 runs batted in, 112 runs scored and 28 stolen bases in the first season.
In 2005, he had hit .321, leading the American League with 124 runs and 48 HR runs and became the first Yankee to win the American League home run. Also, he was the 5th player to win an MVP award. Rodriguez was an All-Star in 200 and was 4th in the league in RBIs 121 and 8th in home runs. He had at least 35 home runs, 100 runs, and 100 RBIs in 9 consecutive seasons.
In 2007, Rodriguez had hit his 500th career home run. He was the first and only player in MLB history to ever hit 500 home runs for 3 different teams. He won the Players Choice Award for Outstanding AL Player. Also, he became a free agent and decided not to be with the Yankees but received criticism for this decision from his fans. He ultimately signed a 10-year contract for 275 million US dollars with the Yankees.
From 2008 to 2009, Rodriguez hit two home runs in the 6th inning that drove in seven runs, setting an American League record for most RBIs and gave him his 12th consecutive season of reaching 30 home runs and 100 RBIs.
He became the 7th player in MLB history to hit 600 home runs and become the youngest player to do so at 35 years age in 2010. He also recorded his 100th RBI.
In 2011, Rodriguez went for arthroscopic surgery on his knee to repair a torn meniscus and was placed on the disabled list. He also faced allegations of being involved in the underground poker games, in which cocaine was explicitly used. He suffered an injury during Yankees versus Seattle in 2012. It was a non-displaced fracture; therefore he was on the disabled list again. But before getting injured, he became the 5th player to record 2,000 career strikeouts in MLB history.
In 2013, he went through a hip surgery. He is also suspected to be a significant body involved in the Biogenesis baseball scandal. In addition to this, he has been inferred for having used performance-enhancing drugs.
Also, he made his 2013 debut with the Yankees in August and on the same day MLB announced he would be banned from the remainder of 2013 season and the entire 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal.
