So it's only been a few hours since the last Alex Rodriguez update which means we're due another. And we have one courtesy of a report in the New York Daily News.
And the update is that A-Rod is in fact facing a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball due to what is reportedly "voluminous evidence" in connection to the Biogenesis scandal. MLB is however offering a deal. If A-Rod takes his medicine now and doesn't fight a suspension he'll be suspended for the rest of this season and all of next season. That would mean A-Rod could return to the Yankees in 2015. The report indicates MLB wants to hear back from A-Rod on the matter by Monday.
It seems like a pretty good deal for A-Rod. He's still set to make $60 million in three years after the suspension and he could put everything behind him. Remember suspensions are without pay so if A-Rod rejects the deal and MLB suspends him for the rest of his career he misses out on over $100 million.
