On Monday, fourteen MLB players are expected to be suspended in the Biogenesis case. A-Rod's suspension/ban is expected to be the worst of the all suspensions, which are expected to mostly be 50 game bans.
A-Rod was involved in Anthony Bosch's Miami clinic, which had sold PEDs to major league players. ESPN's Outside The Lines first reported that the clinic had been distributed PEDs to players. Major League Baseball continued to investigate the case, and suspended Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun. Braun did not appeal, and many other players are not planning on appealing their suspensions, if given. Jhonny Peralta, Francisco Cervelli, Fautino de los Santos, Nelson Cruz, Jesus Montero, Fernando Martinez, Jordan Noberto, Cesar Puello, Bartolo Colon, Melky Cabrera, Yasmani Grandal, and Gio Gonzalez have all been on Bosch's records. Colon, Gonzalez, Cabrera, and Grandal are not expected to be suspended.
Rodriguez's contract ends in 2018, and if he is suspended for the 214 games, he will not return until 2015. He has not appeared in any games for the Yankees this year, and started a new rehab appearance yesterday. In 14 minor league games this season, Rodriguez is hitting .214 with 3 HR and 10 RBI.
