Alex Rodriguez has been banned for 211 regular-season games by Major League Baseball for his part in the sport’s latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal.
The New York Yankees star is expected to appeal the suspension, which takes effect Thursday. He’ll be allowed to play during the grievance process and penciled in to make his season debut Monday night in Chicago.
Rodriguez’s suspension will run through 2014.
The third baseman was linked during the offseason to Biogenesis, the Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing PEDs. A-Rod denied all ties to the clinic and its operator, Anthony Bosch, after the Miami New Times published its bombshell report in January.
Bosch agreed to cooperate with MLB’s probe in June.
