Former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez posted a video on Twitter of him grinding through a workout.

Former New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez and fiancee Jennifer Lopez have been busy rounding up a slew of celebrity investors to bolster their bid to purchase the Mets as they attempt to fend off hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen, who’s reportedly made a top bid of $2 billion.

With the MLB season delayed due to COVID-19, Rodriguez obviously hasn’t been seen broadcasting games for ESPN. Outside of his interest in buying the Mets, we haven’t heard much from the former 14-time All-Star in recent months.

Well, that all changed in one tweet on Wednesday, as Rodriguez posted a grueling montage of his latest workout.

We see you, A-Rod! Like any former pro, the 44-year-old has undoubtedly tacked on a few pounds in retirement. However, this clip — which has a real documentary trailer feel to it — proves that he’s still in incredible shape.

Unfortunately for the three-time AL MVP, a Twitter troll saw this video as an opportunity to crack a joke about his unwavering incentive to become the new majority owner of the Mets.

To be fair, that’s well-played. Rodriguez had to see that one coming.

In all seriousness, it’s awesome to see the former Yankees third baseman putting in the work. With the start of the MLB season right around the corner, he probably wants to look his best on national television once he’s back calling games for ESPN, and who could blame him?

He’s also only four homers shy of 600 for his career. Is a comeback likely? By no means. But if any NL club wants to boost ticket sales (OK, fine…cardboard cutout sales), they could do far worse than deploying A-Rod’s chase to drum up interest. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
