alex rodriguez*We have no idea why, but baseballer Alex Rodriguez has put his nine-bedroom Miami Beach mansion on the market — for $38 million(!) according to Jose Lambiet’s Gossip Extra.

The baseball star, who’s nursing a broken hand and hasn’t played since July, bought the stunning, modern-styled crib (see photo below) in 2010 for a whopping $24 million!

At the time, he was dating actress Cameron Diaz.

He was spotted at the mansion in January with statuesque pro-wrestler Torrie Wilson. And in February, movie director Michael Bay used the property for a Victoria’s Secret photo shoot!

The Zen-like property at 4358 North Bay Road offers 20,000 square feet of space that Rodriguez sparsely but stylishly furnished. It also 275 feet of water frontage that includes not just one but two docks.

Many of the home’s walls are 12-foot impact windows with sweeping views on the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay.
