Alex Rodriguez is still making millions well away from the field. 

TMZ reports the New York Yankees third baseman, who is still on the disabled list nursing his surgically repaired hip, managed one helluva flip. 

A-Rod has accepted a $30 million offer for his 19,861-square-foot Miami Beach estate ... the same property he purchased in 2010 for $7.4 mil. 

After he bought the place, the NY Yankees star sunk an additional $7.6 million into building his dream home -- meaning his total investment was $15 mil. 

Don't worry, guys. It seems this man is going to be well taken care when he decides to hobble into retirement. 

Sotheby's (h/t Business Insider) has more information, including some stunning pics of Rodriguez's quaint Miami Beach abode he just flipped at a remarkable profit. 

According to the listing, one lucky home owner will have a great deal of furniture shopping to do, because they have nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms to fill. 

No great mansion would be without some safety measures, and this one is stocked with "gated, walled property line, 16 security cameras and 275 feet of water frontage with two docks."

And because no self-respecting homeowner would dare be caught walking up stairs like a commoner, the house includes a private elevator, which is most likely away from the casita, guest house and staff quarters that are also listed. 

If that didn't sell you on how remarkable the amenities are, consider TMZ's offering that Matt Damon lives on the same street. 

According to their sources, the buyer is a celebrity who lives in Palm Beach. Yeah, I don't have the brainpower to solve that riddle. 

A-Rod may be stuck on the DL, but the Yankees have provided a strong start to the season and are first in the AL East. Their aging third baseman is flipping houses like Derek Jeter once flipped double plays. 

See, everybody's happy, save the nation of baseball fans who cringe at the thought of Alex "Moneybags" Rodriguez's pile of money getting larger.
