Report: A-Rod Suspension due to Biogenesis Involvement Almost a Guarantee
According to a lengthy report via Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, is all but guaranteed to be suspended by Major League Baseball for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.
Alex Rodriguez, who once appeared on his way to breaking baseball’s all-time home run record, is all but assured of a Biogenesis-related MLB ban being levied against him — quite possibly more than the usual 50 games for first-time offenders — people familiar with the case say.
Rodriguez is expected to be one of up to 15 or so players to receive suspensions by MLB when they are announced, possibly within a couple weeks. All the suspensions could be announced simultaneously.
Rodriguez and the other players linked to the scandal, refused to answer any questions when interviewed by MLB, believing that anything they said would just harm them in the future.
MLB, is said to have done extensive interviews with Tony Bosch, the man who ran the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, and are also said to have receipts and checks from players, as evidence to back up their claims.
Even with the supposed evidence at the disposal of the MLB, the players will appeal any suspensions handed down with the full backing of the union.
Things are about to get real ugly.
