[February 16, 2009]  NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Ivan Rodriguez is still looking for a place to play.

The 14-time All-Star catcher told The Associated Press on Sunday night that he might sign with the Florida Marlins, Houston Astros or New York Mets. He also said he might need to stay patient.

The 37-year-old star known as Pudge says "only God knows" if he is on the list of 104 players who tested positive for steroids during baseball's 2003 survey. Former Texas teammate Jose Canseco has alleged he injected the drug into Rodriguez.

Another former teammate, Alex Rodriguez, had admitted using performance-enhancing drugs while with the Rangers.
