Report: Alex Rodriguez Wants To Play Third Base, Not Only DH

Report: Alex Rodriguez Wants To Play Third Base, Not Only DHAlex Rodriguez is starting to slow down with his age, but he still wants to play third base for the New York Yankees.

"I think the vision for us as a team is now … you want the DH spot to be one that's kind of a revolving door," Rodriguez informed ESPN Deportes about the situation. "I think a lot of us at some point or another, in such a long season, are going to occupy that spot. But for me, I'm really excited about playing third base."

A-Rod is starting to get up there in age at 36 years old. He will turn 37 in July and had career lows in RBIs (62) and home runs (16) for a full season in 2011. He hit just five homers back in 1995, but played only 48 games for the Seattle Mariners that season.

His health is the biggest concern as he only played in 99 games in 2011, and his bat remains a big part of the Yankees future.
