Report: MLB Has Evidence A-Rod Used PEDs Every Year Since '09

New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez famously said in his 2009 apology for using steroids, “The only thing I ask from this group today and the American people is to judge me from this day forward. That’s all I can ask for.”

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that as a result of an investigation into steroid use after the raid on performance enhancing drug clinic, Biogenisis, “there’s said to be evidence he [Rodriguez] used or bought steroids every year since 2009.”

Heyman speculated on the action that major League baseball is likely to take:

Some are speculating that a penalty of 150 games or so may work as a stiff sentence that may not automatically end A-Rod’s career. The number 150 also would be equal to number of games for a player who was hit with two PED penalties (50 plus 100).

A suspension of 150 games would cost Rodriguez about $25 million of the remaining $95 million on his contract

The Yankees’ third baseman faces a long term ban from Major League Baseball, which could include all of 2014, making a return for Rodriguez highly unlikely. However, Commissioner Bud Selig has left open the possibility of a lifetime ban, making a return impossible.
