ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The New York Yankees will release former MVP Alex Rodriguez from his 10-year, $275 million contract that runs through 2017 and he will play his final game with the team on Friday, the team said on Sunday (August 7). Rodriguez, 41 and known as A-Rod, is having one of the worst years of his professional career, hitting nine home runs with a batting average of .204. He has 696 home runs in his Major League career, which began with the Seattle Mariners in 1994. Rodriguez thanked friends, family and fans, pausing to compose himself during the news conference, which some of his teammates attended. He will be unconditionally released by the club from his player contract in order to sign a contract to serve as a special adviser and instructor with the Yankees through December 31, 2017, the Yankees said in a statement. Rodriguez has numbers that rank among the best in baseball history but has also seen his reputation tarnished by performance enhancing drugs. He missed the entire 2014 season due to a doping suspension. He said he hoped to be able to mentor younger players in part by helping them avoid some of his pitfalls.
