Alex Rodriguez Appeals Suspension by MLB Through 2014 Season

Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees was banned from baseball without pay through the 2014 season, the longest doping suspension ever imposed by the sport.

The three-time Most Valuable Player and holder of the biggest salary in Major League Baseball will be able to keep playing as he appeals the penalty to arbitrator Frederic Horowitz. Rodriguez is starting at third base and hitting cleanup in tonight’s road game against the Chicago White Sox. The ban takes effect Aug. 8 and runs 211 games.
