Alex Rodriguez's tumultuous off-season has included his being linked to the purchase and use of performance-enhancing drugs, and rumors that the Yankees were looking for a legal remedy to void the five years, $114 million remaining on his contract -- all while the three-time American League Most Valuable Player has been rehabbing from a torn labrum in his left hip. Rodriguez said Thursday -- despite all the negative press -- he wants to remain a Yankee.

Rodriguez's rehab and training is expected to keep him out of the lineup until midseason.

“I am conducting two rehab sessions each and every day in an effort to get back on the field and rejoin my Yankees teammates,” Rodriguez said through a spokesman. “I think we have a great team and I want to be a part of it.” “Right now I’m dedicating 100 percent of my energy and focus on my rehabilitation,” Rodriguez said.
