I would still wager a decent amount on there being no Biogenesis-related discipline at all — it’s a he-said, she-said at the moment — but if discipline does come it won’t be at least for the next month and change. We know this because, as Jon Morosi reports, Ryan Braun and Gio Gonzalez‘s eligibility for the WBC is not in question:
. . . two sources said Tuesday that any discipline arising from the Biogenesis investigation is unlikely to be announced soon enough to impact the WBC, which begins March 8 for Team USA. The championship game is scheduled for March 19 in San Francisco.
Morosi’s source says that Major League Baseball is still trying to get the records related to Biogenesis from the Miami New Times. So, a couple of weeks out, the folks who would dole out the suspensions still know nothing more than we do.
