What's Really Going On With New York Yankees and Alex Rodriguez's Quad Injury?

Now that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season for PEDs and involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, it seems like only a matter of time before finding out what’s in store for the other players on the list in question–especially Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees. With all of the facts that have come out already, things certainly don’t look good for Rodriguez at this point and to make things even more suspicious–it appears there’s some sort of controversy developing between A-Rod and the Yankees.

Rodriguez was originally expected to return to the majors this week, but an injury to his quad prevented that from happening and even though he’s declared his interest in playing on Friday–it seems like the chances of that happening are slim. What makes this situation even more interesting is the fact that Rodriguez received the opinion of Dr. Michael Gross–who claims an MRI revealed Rodriguez’s quad was fine and there was no damage–without the team knowing.

So with all of this taken into consideration, it’s difficult not to wonder what exactly is going on with Rodriguez and possible suspension that could take place soon.

Rodriguez is at the point where he believes the Yankees are working together with MLB to do whatever it takes to keep him off the field as they continue to sort out the details regarding the Biogenesis scandal–which coincidentally wouldn’t come as a surprise. The sport in general has taken a major blow thanks to all of the lies told by Braun over the years and as bad as it sounds, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Rodriguez’s case causes just as much damage–if not worse.

No matter how you look at the situation, the main factor that sticks out the most is there are shady acts going on by both parties and it will be interesting to see what’s in store for the next few days when it comes to Rodriguez and the Yankees.
