Alex Rodriguez To Fight Any MLB Punishment

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez plans on fighting any suspension or banishment from baseball through the appeals process, according to his lawyer.

“We are focused on an appeal,” Rodriguez’s lawyer, David Cornwell, said in an interview Monday with Stephen A. Smith on “The Michael Kay Show” on ESPN New York 98.7.

There have been indications that with the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies over, Major League Baseball soon will announce the penalties against Rodriguez and other players involved in the Biogenesis case.
