Freshly retired Alex Rodriguez is already working for his former team as a special adviser to the Yankees and owner Hal Steinbrenner would like to see A-Rod around the team more often.
"Obviously he's been doing some broadcasting as well, and he's got other things going on in his life," Steinbrenner said. "But, look, the more he's involved, he's actually tremendous with the young players. Always has been. We are going to continue talking about different ways he can be involved."
The Yanks went 84-78 last season, good enough for 4th in the AL East (9 games behind the Red Sox, 5 behind the Orioles and Blue Jays).
