As long as there is a Designated Hitter....he may play again.  Even for the Yankees.

He'll have a clean slate opportunity.

Great news! And I'm a Yankees fan! I don't think he'll play for the Yankees again. I'll think they'll try to void his contract based on this.

Because the Arbitration Committee reduced it to "162" games, he's eligible to play for the 2014 post-season.

They always have to leave some drama in the equation, don't they?
