Lawyers for Alex Rodriguez are now aware of just how much information MLB has against the Yankees third basemen.
Rodriguez’s lawyers are “engaging in internal discussions about brokering a plea deal with MLB to reduce A-Rod’s looming drug suspension” according to the Daily News.
Major League Baseball is believed to have extensive evidence against Rodriguez including the testimony of Anthony Bosch which suggests that Rodriguez has been acquiring performance-enhancing drugs for several years. Bosch is working with MLB in exchange for them dropping a lawsuit against him and perhaps putting in a good word to law enforcement about him.
Rodriguez will turn 38 soon and a 150 game suspension could effectively end his career.
If Rodriguez is suspended while on the disabled list, he will not be paid during the suspension. However if Rodriguez is able to return prior to the suspension it would be the Yankees responsibility to pay him.
