Report: Alex Rodriguez to receive suspension Monday, through 2014 season

Aug 3, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

A source told Outside the Lines that Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will be suspended by Major League Baseball on Monday. It is expected that Rodriguez will be suspended through the 2014 season. Rodriguez just had his 38th birthday, so if he is to return after his suspension, he would be 40 years old when the 2015 season ends.

An important detail:

Rodriguez has already stated that he plans to appeal any suspension.

Speaking to the media after last night’s rehab game with the Trenton Thunder, Rodriguez said he felt he could play another five years. He currently has 647 career home runs to his name, 13 shy of tying Willie Mays in fourth place on the all-time list. Assuming relatively good health, Rodriguez likely would have easily moved atop Mays in 2014.

Outside the Lines also learned that up to 12 additional players will receive 50-game suspensions without appeal.

    Hey, if A-Rod does in fact receive a ban through 2014 with no chance of appeal, will he be eligible to draw unemployment?

      In a very narrow sense – yes. As long as he is actively seeking employment each week. Problem is I am sure he is deriving income from investments, not to mention endrosements (unless they all get dropped too)….so there goes the UI
