Alex Rodriguez bought a new place in Miami for $24 million

Alex Rodriguez recently bought a new house in Miami for a reported $24 million and Splash News Online has some overhead photos of the place.

It looks decent, I guess, if you’re into sprawling ocean-side estates that also have a pool.

Presumably there’s also a poker room, although that isn’t pictured.

Worth noting: $24 million is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a house, but Rodriguez has made at least $20 million every year since 2001.

And that’s just his baseball salary, so in that sense I guess spending less than one year’s worth of total income on a house is actually kind of cheap.

Report: Diamondbacks sign Jarrod Dyson to two-year, $7.5 million contract

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks have signed outfielder Jarrod Dyson to a two-year contract. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the deal is worth $7.5 million.

Dyson, 33, spent last season with the Mariners. He hit an underwhelming .251/.324/.350, but stole 28 bases while playing superb defense in center field.

Dyson doesn’t quite make up for the Diamondbacks losing J.D. Martinez, who just signed with the Red Sox, but he will bring some speed and defense to the outfield along with A.J. Pollock. It’s not quite clear how the D-Backs plan to utilize Dyson. That should be made clear after the deal is announced.
