Top 10 MLB players most searched in google in 2013, Arod, Miguel Cabrera, Bryce Harper, Puig, Jeter, Mariano, Chris Davis, David Ortiz, Brian Wilson, Ryan Braun

12/18/13, "Google: Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera among MLB's most searched," NJ Star-Ledger, Brendan Kuty

"Three Yankees were among the 10 most-searched Major League Baseball players on Google in 2013. 
The search engine said Alex Rodriguez was searched the most out of anybody. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera took fifth and sixth, respectively.

The global interest in Rodriguez is understandable. The third baseman has spent most of the year fending off allegations of performance-enhancing drug violations — the second time in his career he's been accused of such.

Rodriguez is battling a 211-game suspension from the game. It’s unknown whether he’ll play next season.

He’s also suing the Yankees’ team doctor for alleged medical malpractice while also suing Major League Baseball, accusing it of destroying his reputation and ruining his endorsements.

Jeter also had a difficult of a year, but for much different reasons. The Yankees’ captain spent all but 17 games in 2013 sidelines with various injuries. He’s said repeatedly that he hopes to return in 2014 in all-star form. He said his offseason workouts have gone well and that he expects to be in the starting lineup on Opening Day.

Meanwhile, Rivera excelled in his final season, leaving Yankees fans clamoring that he wouldn’t retire. Instead, Mo reveled in his farewell tour, taking gifts and earning cheers at virtually every stadium he visited.

Since the season’s end, Rivera has been on what seems like a non-stop touring schedule, hitting charity after charity event. He had said he wants to use his celebrity to help people.

Miguel Cabrera and Bryce Harper finished No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. Boston's David Ortiz took eighth."
