Alex Rodriguez Goes 1-For-4 In 2013 Season Debut – VIDEO
Major League Baseball suspended New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, along with 12 other players on Monday, after finding them to have been involved with the South Florida anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis.
MLB suspended Rodriguez through the end of the 2014 season, while banning the other 12, including All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Everth Cabrera, and Jhonny Peralta for 50 games each.
The suspension for Rodriguez, the most high-profile case in the scandal, is slated to begin on Thursday. The 38-year old 14-time All-Star, and three-time Most Valuable Player has 647 career home runs, 1,950 career RBI’s, and 2,902 career hits, over 20 seasons.
Rodriguez, who is appealing his suspension, and who will be able to play until his case is heard, and ruled upon, was in the line-up for the Yankees on Monday night, in Chicago, against the White Sox.
The White Sox snapped a 10-game losing streak, with a 8-1 win, in a game where Rodriguez made his 2013 season debut, going 1-for-4, including a bloop single to left in his first at-bat of the year.
