MLB has told the union which players it intends to suspend in its drug investigation. Three-time MVP Alex Rodriguez is on the list, according to CBS News.
MLB announced on June 14 that umpire Brian Runge was no longer on the staff. He is believed to have failed multiple drug tests.
According to the New York Times, the league is now focusing on the University of Miami baseball team. Investigators believe that there may be a connection between the university’s baseball program and PED use, according to the newspaper.
If the new allegations were true, the Yankees would face high hurdles to get out of the final five years and $114 million of Rodriguez’s record $275 million, 10-year contract.
