Alex Rodriguez net worth so far!
As of today the baseball star is worth 400 million US dollars. Alex Rodriguez was one of the top creditors when the Texas Rangers filed for bankruptcy. He was owed 24.9 million dollars in deferred compensation from the 252 million dollar contract he signed with Texas all the way back in 2000. The issue was resolved when a group purchased the Rangers at a bankruptcy auction for 593 million dollars in 2010.
Selected in the 1993 draft by the Seattle Mariners was young Mr. Rodriguez. He was drafted out of high school at the tender age of 18. His first three years of service, at the ages of 18,19 and 20, saw Rodriguez make a modest amount of 442,000 US dollars. For a teenager, that certainly is a great start. While that amount may have looked like a lot at that point in time, it was nowhere close the future pay he was going to receive.
In 2000, A-Rod inked a 10 year, 252 million dollar contract with the Texas Rangers. Rodriguez was a star in the making and only at 25 years of age. Taking him on was a highly risky yet rewarding deal for the Rangers. Though Rodriguez never brought the World Series Titles to the Rangers, he had personal success.
Alex Rodriguez was traded in 2004 to the Yankees for two players. Yankee fans were delighted with his presence as a previous trade to the Red Sox came to no fruition. And of course the Yankees along with their fans were excited to see what the new talent could do for them. Within his first 4 seasons, Rodriguez won 2 MVP awards. A good trade for the Yankees? But of course.
Opting out of his final three years of his contract, Rodriguez was once again a free agent, looking to command a lucrative deal. He found a deal such as this and signed with the Yankees. A-Rod signed a 10 year, 275 million dollar contract intertwined with many incentives, bonuses, marketing bonuses, and so on. This went on to become a deal that, towards the end of the contract, the Yankees would regret.
Towards the beginning of the new deal with the Yankees, everything looked peachy for both parties. 2009 saw the Yankees winning the World Series. All was well, making the deal look far too good. 2013 was laden with talks about Alex Rodriguez being linked to the usage of performance-enhancing drugs. In that very year, MLB struck down a 211-game suspension that was later appealed to 162-games. A-Rod sat out the entire 2014 season.
