A-Rod may be finished already

-A A +A

NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez is allowed to play. Now we’ll find out if he can anymore.
Coming off his second hip surgery in four years, the 38-year-old third baseman finally made his season debut Monday night for the New York Yankees — hours after he was suspended through 2014 by Major League Baseball as part of the Biogenesis drug investigation.
The embattled slugger promised to appeal his penalty, which probably keeps him in pinstripes for the rest of this year. After that, who knows if he’ll ever take the field again?
So he’s not banned yet, but maybe he’s all but finished. At least as A-Rod the All-Star.
“I just hope that there’s a happy ending there somewhere,” he said.
Time will tell.
Time, and a steady dose of big league pitching. Time, and the daily grind of a major league schedule. Time, and the way his broken-down body rebounds after sliding into second or diving for a grounder.
Four months on the sidelines is a long stretch for any player, especially one so late in his career. Not to mention, Rodriguez wasn’t exactly tearing it up before his latest injury.
He went 3 for 25 (.120) without an RBI in the 2012 playoffs and wound up getting benched. Against right-handers, he was 0 for 18 with 12 strikeouts.
