Alex Rodriguez can now be found on Twitter. The 14 time All-Star is @AROD on twitter and actually tweeted for the first time on May 31. Ben Grossman tweeted in fact that the account is real and verified.
A-Rod received the verified blue checkmark and at this writing has 14,783 followers. Certainly that number will climb exponentially.
A-Rod is a lightning rod for news media, and tweeting will only add to that reputation.
BNS reported earlier today that Rodriguez would begin rehab games on July 1. He has been taking batting practice at the New York Yankees training facility in Tampa and has shown some power in his attempt to come back from surgery on his left hip.
Rodriguez is currently the center of attention in MLB’s investigation into the Biogenesis PED’s scandal. So for all of his tweets are baseball related and don’t have anything to do with his personal life and here’s hoping it stays that way.
