Report: A-Rod may sue MLB over suspension

The saga of Alex Rodriguez just continues to get more bizarre.

The Yankees slugger was recently suspended 211 games by Major League Baseball, a punishment that could effectively end his baseball career. And he is not going to sit down and take it.

According to a report from TMZ, Rodriguez will sue MLB if his suspension is not completely overturned. That doesn't mean reduced. If A-Rod's 211 games are not all wiped off the books, he will proceed with action against the league.
The third baseman, clearly unhappy at the circumstances he was put under and feeling he has been unfairly targeted by baseball's main brass, will litigate against MLB on a number of issues, most notably a violation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, per the report.

It is unclear whether Rodriguez plans to take action prior to his arbitration hearing or will see the process through and then appeal if the arbiter sides (in any capacity) with MLB.

Whatever the case, it is another wrinkle in the Rodriguez biogenesis story. The final chapter is still a long ways away from being determined.
