A-Rod Will Seek Injunction to Halt Suspension

A-Rod Will Seek Injunction to Halt Suspension

Alex Rodriguez will reportedly seek an injunction in federal court to halt the season-long (162 games) suspension handed down by an MLB arbitrator last week.

According to Fox News:

Joe Tacopina confirmed that planned filing to New York Post reporter Ken Davidoff late Sunday. An arbitrator decided Saturday to trim Rodriguez’s suspension from 211 games to the entire 2014 season, including any Yankees playoff games. That means that the new suspension will last 162 games at minimum and 181 games at maximum. 

The planned filing comes one day after Anthony Bosch, the founder of the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic that allegedly supplied performance-enhancing drugs to Rodriguez and a dozen other major leaguers, told CBS’ “60 Minutes” that he received $12,000 per month in cash to keep the Yankee star on performance-enhancing drugs.
