Alex Rodriguez: Ruling on Suspension Appeal Expected in January

December 27, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

The ruling on Alex Rodriguez suspension is expected in January.

Bob Klapisch of the New Jersey Record said via Twitter that he was told the MLB is expecting a decision on A-Rod’s appeal of the suspension “very early in January.”

The decision could “possibly [be] right after New Year’s,” Klapisch added.

Rodriguez allegedly violated the league’s rules against performance-enhancing drugs, an allegation he disagrees with.

With the ruling, Rodriguez and the New York Yankees would know whether Rodriguez is suspended for 211 games or not.
