Many of the players indicted in the Biogenesis scandal will agree to suspensions handed down by Major League Baseball within the next 72 hours, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan.
Three players who were selected to the 2013 MLB All-Star Game -- Jhonny Peralta of the Detroit Tigers, Nelson Cruz of the Texas Rangers and Everth Cabrera of the San Diego Padres -- face punishment, in addition to fellow big-leaguer Francisco Cervelli of the New York Yankees, who is currently on the 60-day disabled list.
Minor leaguers Jesus Montero, Fernando Martinez and Cesar Puello are expected to be disciplined as well, as are free-agent pitchers Jordan Norberto and Fautino De Los Santos. Suspensions could also be handed down to, and accepted by, players whose names have not been leaked, league sources told Passan.
Plea deals for those players will reportedly allow them to play near the end of the season and into the playoffs, per Passan.
Alex Rodriguez's camp still plans to appeal any punishment handed down to the veteran third baseman, so his situation will likely differ significantly from the other players linked to the investigation.
