New York Yankees: Alex Rodriguez To Begin Working With Top Prospects
Anthony Gruppuso-USATSI

Former New York Yankees’ slugger Alex Rodriguez will begin his new job and spend time as a minor league instructor. 

Alex Rodriguez will begin chapter number two with the New York Yankees.

Vice President of Player Development Gary Denbo told Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media that he anticipates A-Rod to start serving as an instructor for the organization’s top prospects at the Florida Instructional League starting September 19 in Tampa.

According to the report, the 41-year old will work with shortstops Gleyber Torres, Jorge Mateo and potentially Miguel Andujar, who is a third baseman.

Despite batting an even .200 in his final 65 games in pinstripes, Rodriguez won two gold gloves, 10 silver slugger awards, three American League MVPs, and was a 14-time All-Star.

With a career total of 696 home runs and 3,115 hits, imagine the impact A-Rod have by just being around the team’s upcoming talent, let alone teach them his ways.
