AROD Gone For All of 2014
New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez will not be playing baseball anytime soon. His involvement with the Florida anti aging clinic Biogenesis, and it’s founder Anthony Bosch as cost him all of the 2014 season. Bosch claims in an interview with Scott Pelley and CBS News that AROD became his client in 2010, and would inject Rodriguez himself with performance enhancing drugs.
At 162 games, this would be the longest suspension in Major League Baseball history. Meanwhile, Rodriguez is suing MLB, Commissioner Bud Selig, and the Major League Baseball Player’s Association in an effort to clear his name.
Rodriguez missed most of 2013 after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his hip to repair a torn labrum. His was limited to only 44 games, batting .244 while hitting 7 HR’s and 19 RBI’s. Rodriguez is currently fifth on the all time home run list with 654 career HR’s, trailing only Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, and Willie Mays.
