After a failed deal between Texas and Boston to trade A-Rod, the Yankees swooped in. The Rangers wanted out of the most expensive contract in baseball history. Aaron Boone suffered an offseason knee injury, and the Yankees traded Alfonso Soriano for A-Rod. With the trade, A-Rod moved from shortstop to third base and changed his number from 3 to 13. In his first year. A-Rod batted .286 with 36 homers and 106 RBIs.
