A-Rod May Sue if Suspension Not Lifted
In federal court
Alex Rodriguez plans to sue Major League Baseball in federal court next month if his suspension related to the league's latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal isn't lifted, according to TMZ.com.
The Yankees third baseman is currently appealing a 211-game suspension for his alleged ties to Biogenesis, the closed Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing PEDs. Twelve other players will serve 50-game bans. Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun previously accepted a 65-game suspension.
TMZ's sources called the investigation of A-Rod "abusive and borderline illegal" and said the league has "no proof" that he allegedly obstructed the Biogenesis probe.
