Alex Rodriguez will remain a Yankee for the foreseeable future as he appeals his 211-game suspension but there is one place where he will not be in pinstripes — on the big screen.

A-Rod originally was cast to play the hero in an upcoming 100-minute animated film “Henry & Me.” The movie depicts the history of the Yankees and features the team’s current and former stars but investors have decided to cut his role out of the film because of fears that his recent suspension and the controversy surrounding him will hurt the marketability of the film according to the New York Post.

“We have investors that we have to answer to just like the Yankees” said executive producer Ray Negron a Yankees adviser whose children’s books served as the inspiration for the film. “If ownership decides that this is a direction that we have to go meaning our investors we have to listen to ownership. That’s just the way it is. It works just like a team. It’s the same thing.”
