Report: Alex Rodriguez sues MLB, players association in hopes of overturning suspension
|01.13.14 at 4:30 pm ET|
Rodriguez saw his original 211-game suspension reduced to 162 games by independent arbitrator Fredric Horowitz on Saturday. He took to Facebook to voice his displeasure with the decision, and indicated that he would indeed appeal it.
MLB and the MLBPA both said in statements that they disagreed with Horowitz’s ruling — for different reasons — but that they respected the arbitration process and recognized Horowitz’s decision as final.
Earlier on Monday, a judge ruled that Horowitz’s decision would be made public in the wake of appearances by commissioner Bud Selig and COO Rob Manfred on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday night.
