Alex Rodriguez #13 of the New York Yankees stands on third base during a rehab game for the Trenton Thunder against the Reading Fightin Phils at Arm & Hammer Park on August 3, 2013 in Trenton, New Jersey. The superstar will miss the rest of this season and all of next season due to a suspension.

Major League Baseball is expected to suspend Yankees 3rd baseman Alex Rodriguez for the rest of this season and all next season, too.

If handed down, the rumored punishment would suspend Rodriguez for a total of 214 games. MLB has not released the official word on the suspension yet, but A-Rod is reportedly already planning to appeal the suspension. 

The suspension is for his links to the now closed Biogensis clinic in the Miami area. Despite the looming suspension, Rodriguez is expected to be in the line-up tonight in Chicago when the Yankees play the White Sox.
