Just weeks after he wound up in MLB's crosshairs for allegedly going to underground poker games, Alex Rodriguez was spotted last Monday in a high-stakes gaming room at the Mohegan Sun casino in the Poconos, the New York Post reported Monday.

The then-injured third baseman was in Pennsylvania to play a rehab game with the minor league Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

Throwing caution to the wind, A-Rod showed up at the casino at about 8:00pm local time, workers told The Post.

They said Rodriguez had a steak dinner and then entered a special high-roller gaming room with two pals.

Star-struck Poconos gamblers tried to chat A-Rod up as he passed through the casino, but witnesses said he and his pals did not want to be hassled by gawkers.

"I saw a few women approach his entourage to get a picture with him, but they were turned down and told to 'keep walking.' It was sad seeing that," a blackjack dealer said.
