NEW YORK, NY (The Spread) - As it turns out, Alex Rodriguez has had a change of heart.

According to Jim Baumbach of Newsday, Alex Rodriguez has voluntarily dismissed his case against Major League Baseball, Major League Baseball Players Association, and commissioner Bud Selig. Friday was the deadline for Rodriguez's side to respond to the MLB and MLPA wanting the case tossed, but his camp has instead decide to dismiss the case.

At this point it's unknown why A-Rod and his team decided to drop the suit but it appears as though he's given up trying to erase the 162-game ban that Selig gave him a few weeks ago. Seeing as how Selig originally wanted to suspend Rodriguez for 211 games, it's still a small victory for A-Rod depending on how you look at the situation. (Especially when you consider that Rodriguez had zero chance of overturning the suspension on appeal.)

With or without Rodriguez, the Yankees remain one of the top World Series contenders according to the odds. Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have installed the Yankees as 10/1 mid-range favorites to win the Fall Classic in 2014. Only the Dodgers (13/2) and Tigers (17/2) have better odds to win the World Series as of this date.

Also of note, Yankees teammate David Phelps has watched some of Derek Jeter's workouts at the club's training facility and says that the shortstop "looks amazing." Jeter has already been in Tampa for a couple of weeks, hitting in the batting cage and fielding grounders while attempting to rebound from an ankle injury. The Yankees are going to need Jeter to have a bounce back year if they hope to overthrow the Red Sox in the AL East, although adding Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury in free agency certainly helped.
