GigaScout Player and Team Assessment  
Joey McMahon / GigaScout - Pro - Fan
Athlete: Alex Rodriguez  (New York Yankees) Position: Infielder (IF) Description: #13 / R-R Assessor: Joey McMahon

Player Analysis  
1. Importance Important  


Alex Rodriquez is the highest paid baseball player in MLB. He's a champion!

2. Wisdom Important  


As A-Rod goes, so go the Yankees. He's a multi-time All-Star, World Champion who can hit for average and power. He's a decent fielder. He makes the Yankees hum!

3. Knowledge Important  


When A-Rod hits over .300 and slugs for over .650, the Yankees win 90% of the time.

4. Current Assessment Fair  

Alex Rodriquez has been suspended for 211 games by MLB for using Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) and obstructing an investigation. He is appealing the ruling, and playing for the Yankees in the meantime. It is unlikely that he will overturn the ruling, and thus is likely to miss the rest of the 2013 season, the entire 2014 season, and may be forced to retire. He is returned to the Yankees as an active player after recovering from an injury on August 5, 2013. His current baseball ability is questionable. He performed adequately in the minor league period.

5. Future Assessment Awesome  


The one constant in A-Rod's future is controversy. The most probable outcomes for A-Rod are not positive. At best they are muddled. He is going to try to come back and be a strong contributor to the Yankees. MLB and perhaps Yankee management want it to be otherwise. His legacy is tarnished. He's likely to become a divisive issue amongst fans and professionals. He has the physical and mental talent to excell. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds.

6. Risk Very High  

A-Rod is a very high risk, now that he's been handed a 211 game suspension, and is appealing it. He's 38 years old, and nearing the end of a successful career. Part of the risk of A-Rod is his choice to contest his suspension. His behavior and decision making show a pattern of recklessness.

7. Practice Plan Assigned  
8. Game Plan Key  


A-Rod's game is one of both power and precision. He can hit for average. He can hit for power. His contribution to the Yankees could be significant. He needs to keep focused on baseball and leave all other matters off the field.
