Good morning, A-Rod.
Former Yankee star Alex Rodriguez will be joining ABC’s “Good Morning America” as a guest contributor, sources told the Daily News on Saturday.
The former third baseman appeared on ABC’s “The View” a few weeks ago, guesting for the entire one-hour taping.
He apparently did so well that ABC brass thought he might be a good addition, sources say. The 41-year-old could possibly appear on other ABC news programs as well, they added.
Rodriguez has been expanding his on-air time since stepping away from baseball last year.
His role as a FOX studio baseball analyst has earned him a whopping $21 million while not playing for the Yankees this season.
The Washington Heights-born slugger made his debut as an FS1 color commentator alongside play-by-play man Kevin Burkhardt last week during a Yankees-Royals game at Kauffman Stadium.
The broadcast went smooth, but a pre-game tweet raised some eyebrows.
Fox tweeted a picture of a studious A-Rod with a notebook in front of him, but some internet sleuths zoomed in to reveal an awkward “Child” list in front of A-Rod that included items such as “Birth control,” “Baby,” and “Pull out stuff.”
The tweet was deleted.
Rodriguez shared an awkward TV moment with former teammate Derek Jeter earlier this month when the pair appeared at a charity event.
The two ducked questions from CNBC’s Bob Pisani about their private lives and other topics.
A-Rod, who is still being paid around $130,000 a night to be a special adviser this season for the Yankee, has been making use of his time away from the diamond — dating Jennifer Lopez.
Rodriguez, 41, and the “Ain’t Your Mama” singer have been together for almost five months, but didn’t go public until early March.
Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 season because of his alleged involvement with the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drugs scandal.
During the course of his career, he earned over $441 million, according to baseball-reference.com.
