After serving a 211-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, Alex Rodriguez is eligible to return to the Yankees next season. He's expected to play more as a DH, as well as maybe see some time at first base if he can make the transition. 

The Yankees reportedly may also try to make a move for third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who the World Champion San Francisco Giants are expected to let hit free agency.
