MLB suspends Alex Rodriguez for 211 games, 'A-Rod' expected to appeal

MLB suspends Alex Rodriguez for 211 games, 'A-Rod' expected to appeal

Major League Baseball handed down multiple suspensions on Monday regarding players involvement with a Biogenesis case with probably the most anticipated ruling coming for New York Yankees third baseman, Alex Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, 38, who previously played shortstop for the Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers before high-tailing it out to the east coast, has been suspended by MLB for 211 games, through the 2014 season.

In December 2007, the Yankees and "A-Rod" agreed to a 10-year, $275 million contract. This contract was the richest contract in baseball history breaking the previous record of $252 million.

In February 2009, after having denied the use of performance-enhancing drugs, Rodriguez admitted to using steroids, claiming he used them from 2001 to 2003 when playing for the Texas Rangers due to an enormous amount of stress and pressure.

Rodriguez reportedly received HGH (human growth hormone) from Biogenesis of America, an anti-aging clinic in  Florida.

Rodriguez  was given until the afternoon of August 4, 2013, to reach an agreement regarding a suspension or greater punishment for his role in the Biogenesis affair.

Although the standard punishment for a first offense under MLB's drug policy is 50 games, MLB has the option of suspending Rodriguez for longer than that under the collective bargaining agreement if it determines his actions present conduct  that would be considered detrimental to baseball.

After hearing the news of his suspension, Rodriguez released a statement saying, "I am disappointed with the penalty and intend to appeal and fight this through the process. I am eager to get back on the field and be with my teammates in Chicago tonight. I want to thank my family, friends and fans who have stood by my side through all this."

The Major League Baseball Players Association said Monday that it's standing behind New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. "

We agree with his decision to fight his suspension," the union said in a statement, adding that it believed the league's commissioner "has not acted appropriately."

Earlier Monday, Texas Rangers outfielder, Nelson "Boomstick" Cruz, along with 12 others players, accepted their 50-game suspensions handed down by MLB commissioner, Bud Selig.
