Report: MLB offers Alex Rodriguez a 150-game suspension

A person close to Alex Rodriguez told Bob Nightengale of USATODAY that the disgraced slugger has a standing offer from MLB to have his suspension reduced from 211 games to 150 if he foregoes his appeal.

The source told Nightengale that MLB originally offered a 100-game ban before announcing the 211-game suspension, but that the compromise was upped to 150 games once the announcement was made.

MLB denied the report to Nightengale: “We have not offered 100 games and no offer is on the table,” MLB vice president Rob Manfred said in an e-mail to USA TODAY Sports.
