It looks like A-Rod has been landed in some hot water. Oh, no!
The New York Yankees player has been reportedly taking prescription enhancing drugs, and the Major League Baseball said that he will be suspended on Monday for being linked to distributing them.
As far as how long the suspension will be, it is kept anonymous, but there are speculations that it will be throughout the 2014 season. A-Rod can get a shorter suspension if he chooses to file a grievance.
The negative part is that A-Rod was set to return to the game since hip and quadriceps surgery, and this report against him was leaked.
The good part is that A-Rod can play while this investigation occurs, but he did have some words about the MLB keeping him from playing, saying after Friday night’s game:
“There is more than one party that benefits from me not ever stepping back on the field. When all this stuff is going on in the background and people are finding creative ways to cancel your contract and stuff like that, I think that’s concerning for me.” Yikes!
So far there have been 43 suspensions under the major league drug agreement since 2005. (Let’s hope that A-Rod isn’t an addition!)
This is an unfortunate event for A-Rod, but we hope that however long he will be out, that he keeps pushing harder and keeping healthy to get back in the lineups!
