Alex Rodriguez's career as a Yankees may come to an end.

The New York Yankees potentially can void Alex Rodriguez’s contract if accusations of his involvement in another performance-enhancing drug scandal are true. 

If they are successful, the Yankees will reach their goal of lowering payroll under $189 million by 2014, and have money to sign potential free agents.

A Miami New Times investigation discovered records detailing Rodriguez and other MLB players’ association with a wellness clinic that administered performance-enhancing drugs ran by Anthony Bosch. 

According to ESPN, the Yankees are pursuing about “20 different ways” to void the remaining $114 million owed to Rodriguez. The 37-year-old third basemen possibly breached his contract by receiving medical treatment from a doctor without the team's permission, and he might have broken the law by purchasing controlled substances from Bosch.

If the contract is voided, there are several ways the Yankees can spend the money to improve the team.
