"A-Rod" Suspension Reduced To 162

(New York, NY) -- An arbitrator is reducing the drug suspension of Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez from 211 games to 162. The ruling on the 38-year-old's grievance hearing was handed down Saturday. The 162-game ban is still the longest drug suspension in major league history and would keep "A-Rod" out for the entire 2014 season. He says he will appeal the ruling in federal court.

Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch says Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is driven by his quest to be the lone member of the 800 home run club. Bosch tells CBS' "60 Minutes" that "A-Rod" studied performance-enhancing drugs and dosages to maximize his potential and that he would sometimes inject "A-Rod" personally because Rodriguez does not like needles.
