New York Yankees team captain Derek Jeter said Friday he wasn’t sure if suspended teammate Alex Rodriguez will join the team at spring training later this month.
After throwing a temper tantrum earlier this week, suspended New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, and Major League Baseball, must wait for an arbitrator’s decision on his 211-game suspension for using performance enhancing drugs.
Baseball Star Alex Rodriguez was back in court Monday at a grievance hearing to overturn his 211- game suspension for allegedly violating the sport’s drug agreement and labor contract.
Alex Rodriguez entered baseball in July 1994 and was immediately pegged as a future Hall of Famer and one of the greatest to ever play. Instead, the player who was considered a shoo-in for Cooperstown will be suspended through the rest of the 2013 season and all of the 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal, according to CBSNews.com.
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was hit with a 214 game suspension Monday afternoon, but it’s his pocketbook that may take the biggest hit.
Major League Baseball is reportedly prepared to impose a suspension on New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez as early as this week, according to a report from the New York Post.
When former Biogenesis owner Anthony Bosch reportedly agreed to cooperate with Major League Baseball, it could be the opening of Pandora’s Box when it comes to drugs in the sport. But, Major League Baseball should also tread carefully based on another major scandal.
