Report: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis group given Sunday deadline to accept suspensions

Elsa

The Rodriguez saga should reach a conclusion in the coming days.

Major League Baseball has reportedly given Alex Rodriguez and a group of players who have been connected to the Biogenesis scandal until Sunday to accept suspensions, and all information will be made public on Monday regardless, according to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.

The belief is that players who accept suspensions will be given lesser penalties than players who do not, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Rodriguez is not expected to accept his suspension. He plans to fight the league on any penalties he faces and return to the major leagues as soon as possible, according to ESPN.

The Yankees third baseman is still recovering from offseason hip surgery and a quad strain. He's expected to be in the lineup for the Double-A Trenton Thunder on Friday night and will be playing third base.

Major League Baseball and Rodriguez's representatives continue to discuss a settlement, but nothing has been agreed upon at this point.
