With as much action as there has been on the baseball field, there has been just as much off the field between Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees.
ESPN New York's Andrew Marchand provided a good overview of what has transpired over the past few days between the two sides, which includes A-Rod seeking a second opinion on his injury in an attempt to convince the Yankees he's ready to return to the big leagues sooner.
This issue may have been resolved, as it is reported that Rodriguez has accepted the Yankees' rehab plan, per Marchand and Wallace Matthews. His troubles off the field may not be resolved though, as he is still the center of attention of MLB's investigation into Biogenesis. Ryan Braun was the first to be punished when he was suspended for the remainder of the season by the league earlier this week.
Alex Rodriguez may not be as lucky though, as CBS Evening News' Jim Axelrod reported that Rodriguez could face a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball, per CBS New York.
This type of punishment is hard to believe because he has never been officially suspended for PED use in his career. Still, it is not hard to believe that this drama between the Yankees and Rodriguez over a sprained quad could possibly be connected to his involvement with the Biogenesis investigation.
