New York Yankees: Signs A-Rod Is Done

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 19, 2016

Alex Rodriguez sure looked like he was done as a major league ballplayer during the 2012 postseason.

Not only did New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi send a pinch-hitter for A-Rod in crucial late-inning situations, but he eventually took Rodriguez out of the lineup altogether.

But besides being benched, what other signs has A-Rod shown that mean he could be finished? What about his off-the-field behavior? Is he healthy enough to play in the majors anymore?

Bleacher Report's MLB Lead Writer Ian Casselberry and Pop Culture Lead Writer Gabe Zaldivar highlight four reasons why A-Rod's career appears to be over.

Is Rodriguez finished in your view, or will he come back strong next year?
