Performance Enhancement

A-Rod Suspended Through 2014

He’s outta there—almost. Alex Rodriguez has been suspended without pay for the rest of the 2013 season and all of 2014’s, an unprecedented 211 games in total. But he’s appealing the suspension and will continue to play until his appeal is decided, likely sometime in September. Rodriguez was suspended for using performance-enhancing drugs, including testosterone and human growth hormone, and for obstructing an investigation into the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic. Twelve other players were suspended for 50 games.
