Major League Baseball is expected to announce suspensions stemming from its investigation of players associated with South Florida anti-aging clinic Biogenesis and performance enhancing drugs, according to CBSSports.com.
Players have until Sunday to accept their suspensions from the league. Most teams will have 50 games left in the season by early next week and Monday is a travel day for 12 teams. Therefore, suspended players on teams with off days would not have to travel. Eight players, including New York Yankees catchers Francisco Cervelli and Jesus Montero, and Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz could receive 50-game suspensions that would essentially end their season. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez may receive a much longer suspension because the league has said it has evidence that he tried to interfere with its investigation. Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Ryan Braun is serving a 65-game suspension.
