A Rod is accused of using performance enhancing drugs at the now shuttered Biogenesis clinic in South Florida. Rodriguez has been out all season due to a hip surgery and was expected to debut tonight against the White Sox.
Rodriguez is not alone in the scandal. Twelve other players were dealt fifty game suspensions today.
In a career spanning nineteen seasons, he has amassed over six hundred home runs.
He holds the largest contract ever in American sports, signing with the Yankees in 2007 for $275 million over 10 years.
Rodriguez said Friday he believes his contract makes him an attractive target for a baseball ban or suspension.
