Analysis: Rodriguez savored every moment of his final game for the New York Yankees and possibly the last of his eventful 22-year career. The moment that touched him the most was when manager Joe Girardi gave the 41-year-old an opportunity to play third base for one more out. Before Rodriguez walked off the field to the ovation, he was honored in a ceremony which appropriately enough was conducted with loud thunder in the background.

Analysis: A-Rod, four homers shy of 700 for his career, will face the Rays' Chris Archer on Friday night in his final game. The 41-year-old is 2 for 15 with two homers against the right-hander. Rodriguez has only four hits in his last 41 at-bats overall.
|Aug. 7 8:34 AM PT9:34 AM MT10:34 AM CT11:34 AM ET11:34 ET15:34 GMT23:34 8:34 AM MST10:34 AM EST11:04 AM VEN19:34 UAE10:34 AM CT-Rodriguez has announced he will play his final major league game Friday. During a press conference before the Yankees' game against the Indians, Rodriguez said he was approached by Hal Steinbrenner on Wednesday about retiring and said it was the Yankees' decision. He will stay on with the Yankees, however, and become a special adviser and instructor with the team.
Analysis: The 41-year-old Rodriguez will go down as one of the most prolific and polarizing figures in baseball history. The three-time AL MVP and 14-time All-Star has 696 home runs to trail only Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth but was also suspended for the entire 2014 season for performance enhancing drugs. He has been a nonfactor on a disappointing Yankees team this season, batting .204 with nine homers and 29 RBIs, and has gotten just one at-bat this month.

Analysis: The 41-year-old Rodriguez wasn't in the lineup Thursday night at Yankee Stadium for the wrap up of the Subway Series. A-Rod is in a 2-for-28 rut, is hitting .204 overall and has started once since July 22. He is stuck at 696 career home runs.

Analysis: Friday's game at Tampa marked the sixth in a row that the 41-year-old wasn't in the Yankees' starting lineup. He's only been used as a designated hitter and pinch hitter, batting .206 with nine homers and 29 RBIs in 58 games, but he's been working out at first.

Analysis: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel has been tough on Rodriguez, but the decision was more to keep Carlos Beltran in the lineup. Beltran has hit .305 this season with 21 home runs and 62 RBIs entering Monday.

Analysis: If you still have him on your fantasy roster, it's time to let him go after going 1 for 15 in his last five games.

Analysis: Rodriguez is hitting just .216 on the season, but he could be a good choice this week since he's batting .368 with two homers in five games against the Orioles in 2016.

Analysis: Rodriguez raised his OPS to .653 and has now gone nine straight games without a walk. That means pitchers aren't scared of him anymore and why would they be? He's one of baseball's worst hitters.
|June 1 10:53 PM PT11:53 PM MT12:53 AM CT1:53 AM ET1:53 ET5:53 GMT13:53 10:53 PM MST12:53 AM EST1:23 AM VEN9:53 UAE12:53 AM CT-Rodriguez is back in the New York Yankees' lineup for Wednesday's series finale against the Blue Jays.
Analysis: Rodriguez sat out the first two games in Toronto, both New York losses, after playing the previous four games. He's batting .170 with six home runs and 14 RBIs. Rodriguez will bat sixth for just the third time this season. He's one spot behind struggling first baseman Mark Teixeira, who's batting fifth for the fifth time in 2016.

Analysis: The homer is A-Rod's lone hit in eight at-bats since returning from a hamstring injury Thursday. He's struck out in four of those plate appearances. Rodriguez can still bring power to your fantasy team, though owners will have to live with a low batting average.

Analysis: Rodriguez wasn't in the lineup for the New York Yankees for their series opener Monday night at Texas, though manager Joe Girardi said A-Rod had already talked to him about maybe pinch-hitting in the game. In Sunday's 8-1 home loss to Tampa Bay, Rodriguez drove in New York's run with a fourth-inning double that snapped a 1-of-18 slide. He was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the sixth after he felt something his lower back.
