New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, returning from a 162-game ban for using performance-enhancing drugs, apologized to team officials on Tuesday, the Major League Baseball club said. The apology was given during a meeting at Yankee Stadium where Rodriguez and his attorney Jim Sharp met with team owner Hal Steinbrenner, president Randy Levine, general manager Brian Cashman, and assistant general manager Jean Afterman. As far as the Yankees are concerned, the next step is to play baseball in spring training." Rodriguez, who will turn 40 in July, is still owed $61 million guaranteed over the next three years, and a potential of $30 million more in bonuses for reaching home run marks that the club is trying to get out of. Those bonuses were agreed by the Yankees before third baseman Rodriguez admitted in 2009 to prior steroids use and was found in 2013 to have broken the doping rules. Click here to read full news..
