The Alex Rodriguez saga has an end in sight, and it appears the third baseman’s future will be decided by Monday. It has been reported that A-Rod’s punishment will be more severe than Ryan Braun’s, and according to a report from the New York Daily News, that rumor is true. Major League Baseball is seeking to strike a deal with Rodriguez that will suspend him for the rest of the current season and all of next season without pay, but the deal would allow him to return to the Yankees in 2015, and potentially allow him to collect on a big portion of the remaining $100 million on his contract. The seemingly good deal that could see the end of the 38-year-old’s career, but allow him to receive a good chunk of his monster contract is contingent on if A-Rod doesn’t fight a suspension. If the Yankees star rejects the deal, however, and a source close to Rodriguez confidently says he will, then the 38-year-old will likely be facing a lifetime ban. MLB officials hope to hear by Monday whether or not A-Rod will accept the deal, and if he rejects it, the New York Daily News reports his suspension will be announced either Monday or Tuesday.
