Yankees | Alex Rodriguez facing 150-game suspension?
Sat, 13 Jul 2013 22:46:25 -0700

Legal representatives for New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hip) are engaging in internal deliberation about the possibility of a plea deal with the MLB to reduce a potential suspension regarding Rodriguez's involvement with the Biogenesis clinic in South Florida. The same three sources that spoke about this said that A-Rod could be facing a 150-game suspension as "the best that could be expected" after any deal would be reached. Rodriguez met with MLB investigators until about 4 p.m. ET Friday, July 12, and he reportedly was "shaken up" when he met with the MLB Players Association. He told general manager Brian Cashman he "just couldn't make it" to his scheduled rehab assignment.

It's widely believed that the league has extensive evidence that Rodriguez violated several points in the joint drug agreement, including the acquisition of performance-enhancing drugs provided by Anthony Bosch over a few years, records of which the former Biogenesis director may have provided. Among the substances he's purported to have gained are testosterone cream; IGF-1, a stimulant of insulin production and muscle growth; "troches," lozenges that include 15 percent testosterone; pink cream, a combination of a testosterone supplement and growth hormone; and "Sub-Q," noted as a mixture of HGH, IGF-1, and a few other substances.
