Get ready for a lot more Alex Rodriguez on your television.

The former Yankees slugger is joining Fox Sports’ baseball coverage as a full-time studio analyst, the network announced Tuesday.

Rodriguez also will be a game analyst for select Fox MLB Saturday telecasts, as well as a feature reporter for Fox’s MLB pregame coverage and Fox Sports 1’s studio show MLB Whiparound.

“I’m excited to continue working with the Fox Sports family,” Rodriguez said in a statement issued by the network. “It’ll be great to get back on set with the guys for the regular season and postseason, especially the All-Star Game in my hometown of Miami.”

Rodriguez first joined the broadcasting ranks in 2015 as a guest analyst for the World Series. He impressed in that role and followed it up as a guest analyst throughout the 2016 postseason.

The Yankees released Rodriguez last August. He served as a guest instructor for the Yankees earlier this spring and made it clear that he was retired.

Rodriguez ranks fourth all-time with 696 career home runs and had a career .295 batting average with 3,115 hits in 22 seasons.
