MEXICO CITY (AP) - Alex Rodriguez says his season-long suspension could be a benefit, allowing him to rest and return to the Yankees for the final three years of his contract.
Speaking late Wednesday in Mexico's capital during a promotional appearance, Rodriguez declined to talk specifically about his suspension for violating baseball's drug agreement and labor contract.
Rodriguez, speaking publicly for the first time since arbitrator Fredric Horowitz's decision, said he wanted to end his career with New York. Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner has declined to talk about his possible return but has called him a ''great player.''
