Tribune wire reports

(Chicago Tribune)–New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 season by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz on Saturday, stemming from the Biogenesis scandal.

The suspension also includes all potential playoff games for the season.

Horowitz’s ruling upholds most of Major League Baseball’s original ban of 211 games. The arbitrator’s decision comes after Rodriguez appealed the suspension and played the final two months of the 2013 season.

Rodriguez was among 13 players suspended after MLB investigated Biogenesis, the former South Florida anti-aging clinic that was linked to performance-enhancing drugs. Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Ryan Braunreceived the second-longest ban of 65 games, which he served. The other players were banned 50 games.

Rodriguez announced on his Facebook page that he will contest Saturday’s decision in federal court.
