MLB to reveal Biogenesis suspensions this week?


The world of the MLB has been rocked by the Biogenesis scandal as of late and has been anxiously awaiting the league’s annoucement as it pertains to suspensions.

We are already aware of the suspension to Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Bruan, but names like Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees have yet to receive a verdict.

That may change this week.

According to Joel Sherman and Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, the MLB may be ready to announce the suspensions:

The strong indications are Major League Baseball will announce all the suspensions in the Biogenesis case this week, including one that could cover the rest of this year and all of next season for Alex Rodriguez, The Post has learned.

It always has been MLB’s plan to announce the suspensions at one time for the 15-plus players believed to be facing sanctions in the performance-enhancing drug case. MLB went early with Ryan Braun’s suspension because of his willingness to accept the penalty without appeal.

What’s most notable about this is the fact the report goes on to suggest commissioner Bud Selig could ask for lifetime banishment. Rodriguez is already facing a suspension for all of next year, but a lifetime ban would change the sport forever.

Stay tuned.
