At one point Alex Rodriguez was going to appeal any decision made by the MLB on his probable upcoming suspension, but now that may not be the case as the organization is planning to release the penalties soon.
Earlier tonight, USA Today Sports first reported that the New York Yankees’ superstar could be facing a lifetime ban, and the MLB was in the works to suspend eight other people associated with the Biogenesis scandal.
According to Rotoworld, A-Rod who previously was going to appeal any suspension may now think differently after learning what the MLB has against him. Instead, a settlement could be reached between A-Rod and the organization.
Previous reports indicated that A-Rod was expected to appeal the suspension no matter how stiff it was, but it appears he might be wavering on that stance after hearing what evidence MLB has on him. The post-Ryan Braun Biogenesis suspensions are expected to be handed down later this week.
There’s plenty of debate that fueled on Twitter shortly after USA Today’s report on whether or not A-Rod’s lifetime ban is justified.
Nothing more is known exactly about the eight other penalties that are coming down.
