Alexander Emmanuel "Alex" Rodriguez, nicknamed "A-Rod", is an American professional baseball third baseman and shortstop for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball. He previously played for the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers. Rodriguez was one of the sport's most highly touted prospects and is considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time. During his 20-year career, Rodriguez has amassed a .299 batting average, 654 home runs, 1,969 runs batted in, and 2,939 hits. He is a 14-time All-Star and has won three American League Most Valuable Player Awards, ten Silver Slugger Awards, and two Gold Glove Awards. However, he has led a highly controversial career due to his lucrative contracts and his use of illegal performance-enhancing drugs. Rodriguez was drafted by the Mariners out of high school as the first overall selection in the 1993 MLB Draft, and he debuted in the major leagues the following year at the age of 18. In 1996, he became the Mariners' starting shortstop and finished second in voting for the AL MVP Award.
