Report: “A-Rod” Won’t Make Deal With MLB

(New York, NY) — New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez says he’s not going to negotiate any settlement with Major League Baseball concerning the Biogenesis investigation. Two people described as being close to Rodriguez told “USA Today” that he plans to appeal any suspension that comes his way. According to a person familiar with the investigation, MLB is prepared to suspend “A-Rod” at least 100 games for his role with Biogenesis, alleged mistruths about using performance-enhancing drugs in the past and possible interference with the ongoing investigation.

CBSsports.com reported Tuesday that A-Rod may face a harsher punishment than the 65-game suspension handed out to the Brewers Ryan Braun Monday. The website cited the following tweet from CBS’s Jim Axelrod:

                MLB source tells @JimAxelrod A-Rod faces
harsher discipline than Ryan Braun & could face
lifetime suspension. More tonight on .
