Alex Rodriguez was scheduled to undergo hip surgery in New York today, but Miami is where the perennial MLB All-Star is expected to spend the bulk of his six-month recovery process. He has the perfect house just for that purpose, now that the Yankees third baseman has pulled his waterfront modern off the market.
Rodriguez listed the 9-bedroom, 13-bathroom custom-built beauty for $38 million in August, but Gossip Extra reports that the slugger has decided now is not the time to sell. Instead, A-Rod will make use of the pool, state-of-the-art gym and batting cage to rehabilitate his surgically-repaired left hip.
The goal is to get back into the Yankees lineup after the All-Star break in mid-July. By then, A-Rod will be turning 38, and he’ll be eager to prove to critics that his Hall of Fame-caliber baseball career is not over, especially after his horrific postseason performance that helped knock the Yankees out of the playoffs.
