A-Rod among 13 suspended by MLB
NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Monday when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players in a drug case - the most sweeping punishment since the Black Sox scandal nearly a century ago.
Rodriguez was allowed to make his season debut for the Yankees Monday night in Chicago against the White Sox and spoke to the media beforehand.
Also among the 13 players suspended by MLB were injured Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Mets utilityman Jordany Valdespin, recently demoted to the minors.
