As of Wednesday when the final out of the 2014 World Series was caught by Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants, Alex Rodriguez’s one-year suspension officially ended. Rodriguez is finally off baseball’s restricted list, and has been reinstated to the New York Yankee’s roster.

Rodriguez, 39, was unable to play the entirety of the 2014 season due to a suspension following Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis case.

A-rod has $61 million and three years remaining on his contract with the Yankees. The deal was negotiated after the 2007 season, and as part of that deal, Rodriguez can earn an additional $6 million if he hits just six more home runs to tie with Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list with 660.

Even despite the heated and long appeals process, the Yankees have no indicated that they will release Rodriguez, but if they did decide to, they would owe him his entire salary regardless. Officials with the Yankees admitted that if A-Rod can still play, then they will take him back for 2015.

According to ESPN, A-Rod will be replacing Jeter as the Yankee’s lead character in 2015.

Fans were heartbroken to learn that Donovan would not be joining Team U.S.A. in Brazil to duke it out in the 2014 World Cup, but this game should serve as consolation! Donovan himself stated, ”You don’t want your last memory to be getting cut from the team, and my family didn’t either, so this will be a nice way to hopefully put a ribbon on my career. And I’m excited to have a chance to say goodbye to a lot of people who have been supportive of me.”

Soccer supporters are eager to see Donovan end his career on a high note, but they are also excited for the future, for Team U.S.A. consists of young talent. The team’s coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, explained, “It’s about building a new hierarchy of the senior national team because after every World Cup, it’s time to start fresh again.”

Friday’s exhibition match will be against Ecuador at 7 p.m. in Hartford Connecticut at Rentschler Field. Before we start fresh, let’s say goodbye to Landon Donovan!
