A-Rod ends legal battle with MLB, union
He filed a notice with the court dismissing his lawsuit against Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association.
Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games on Aug. 5 for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract. On Jan. 11, arbitrator Fredric Horowitz reduced the penalty to 162 games plus the 2014 postseason.
This may be a sign that Rodriguez is now willing to accept his penalty.
Rodriguez’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, told the New York Post that Rodriguez will not attend spring training. Rodriguez is allowed to participate in spring training while under suspension, but apparently has decided not to do so.
