Monday looks like D-Day. or should it be B (Biogenesis day)? sources: players told announcements scheduled for monday.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) August 2, 2013
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is expected to be suspended by MLB on either Sunday or Monday according to Teri Thompson, Bill Madden and Michael O'Keeffe of the New York Daily News. The plan from Commissioner Bud Selig's office is to suspend A-Rod for the rest of the 2013 season and the entire 2014 season, a move that could end the career of the former MVP and number one draft pick.
A-Rod will be disciplined possibly on Sunday but more likely on Monday after MLB announces that eight other players have been suspended by MLB for acquiring performance-enhancing drugs from Anthony Bosch and his Biogenesis anti-aging clinic.
"He’ll either be suspended for 200 games or forever," said one of the sources, referring to A-Rod. "They want to get deals with everybody else first."
The eight other players will be suspended on Monday, most notably Francisco Cervelli, Jhonny Peralta and Nelson Cruz. All players are expected to be suspended for 50 games. The suspensions will last until the end of the season, allowing the players to get a fresh start for 2014.
