Suspension reportedly looms for Alex Rodriguez

NEW YORK — Major League Baseball told the New York Yankees that Alex Rodriguez will be suspended Monday for his links to a clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs but can play while he appeals the penalty, a person familiar with deliberations told The Associated Press.

The Yankees were not told the exact length of the suspension, though they were under the impression it will be through the 2014 season, the person said Sunday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statement was authorized.
