NEW YORK (CNN) -- Major League Baseball will probably move Monday to suspend New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez amid allegations involving the use of performance-enhancing drugs, two sources close to the decision told CNN on Sunday.
The length of the suspension was not known, nor was the timing of any announcement.
Rodriguez, who has been playing in the minor league as he recovers from injuries, told reporters Saturday that he is looking forward to rejoining his teammates in Chicago on Monday and wants to get back on the field.
The 38-year-old slugger is accused of having ties with the now-shuttered Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in south Florida and taking performance-enhancing drugs. He has denied the accusation.
The Biogenesis scandal has already ensnared one star: 2011 National League MVP and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun. Last month Braun was suspended without pay for the rest of this season for violating the league's drug policy, baseball Commissioner Bud Selig announced.
