Alex Rodriguez

Major Shrinkage In Miami

9/23/2013 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Alex Rodriguez  -- who signed a $275 million contract with the Yankees in 2007 --  is now pinching pennies by downsizing in a spectacular way.

A-Rod -- who dumped his $30 million oceanfront Miami palace --  just bought a nearby condo for $2.1 million -- around 15 times cheaper than his previous digs.

And when we say it's modest, we mean it. The "luxury" condo, purchased last month, is 1,725 sq. ft with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms -- a broom closet in ARod's world.

The Miami mansion was a comfortable 19,861 sq. ft., with 9 bedrooms, 11 full bathrooms (plus 2 half bathrooms), a 4-car garage, a state of the art security system with 16 cameras, and a Zen garden.

A-Rod appears to be gearing up for a long winter in an uncertain future.

We'd say it sucks to be him ... but it still doesn't. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
