The star is taking a $400,000 financial hit on the property. He paid $4.8million for the home back in 2014, according to TMZ.
A-Rod was still a New York Yankee then but spent the entire 2014 season under suspension because he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
The Honnold And Rex home was constructed in 1954 as part of Architectural Projects magazine’s Research House program, but has been remodeled since.
Spread across 3,700 square feet, the two-story house features four bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as a swimming pool and backyard fire pit.

Alex was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis from 2002 to 2008, and the two of them shares daughters Natasha, 14, and Ella, 11.
Meanwhile, Jennifer shares her 11-year-old twins Max and Emme with her third ex-husband Marc Anthony, whom she was married to from 2004 to 2014.
When Alex proposed in in March, he presented her with her fifth engagement ring – the others were from her three husbands and ex-fiance Ben Affleck.

In a YouTube video promoting her latest tour this June, Jennifer confessed that her first two marriages ‘don’t really count’ because they were so brief.
Dismissing her fleeting unions to waiter Ojani Noa and dancer Cris Judd, she dished that she wants a ‘big church wedding’ with Alex.
‘I’ve never been married in a church and I’ve been married three times, and once was nine months and once was 11 months, so I don’t really count those. But I was married to Marc for 10 years, with the kids,’ she explained.
