Alex Rodriguez's season-long suspension ends and he's restored to Yankees' 40-man roster


NEW YORK (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez's season-long suspension formally ended Thursday, a day after the World Series ended.

The New York Yankees reinstated the third baseman from the restricted list.

Rodriguez was suspended by Major League Baseball for violations of the sport's drug agreement and labor contract and lost just over $22 million of his $25 million salary. The three-time AL MVP, who turns 40 on July 27, is owed $61 million by the Yankees over the next three seasons. New York general manager Brian Cashman said it's possible Rodriguez may see some time at first base.

New York did not have to make a move on its 40-man roster because 10 players became free agents, including Derek Jeter, David Robertson, Hiroki Kuroda and Ichiro Suzuki. Jeter, the Yankees' captain, is retiring.
