If Alex Rodriguez is punished by the MLB for the latests claims about illegal performance-enhancing drug allegations, the New York Yankees will try to void his contract, according to YouWager experts.
Several sources have confirmed that Rodriguez has really nothing to worry about even if the charges turn out to be true. Currently there is no precedent to successfully void a contract in baseball over PEDs.
It has been said that the Yankees “are looking at about 20 different things,” including whether the 37 year-old breached the contract by taking medical treatment from an outside doctor without the team’s authorization, and the chance that Rodriguez might have broken the law by purchasing controlled substances from a Miami “wellness clinic” run by nutritionist Anthony Bosch.
As of now the baseball league is in the middle of investigating Bosch, who has been linked to Rodriguez and several other players.
Rodriguez has gone ahead and hired famed Miami criminal defense attorney Roy Black to represent him.
Sources have stated that even if it is proved that Rodriguez received PEDs and HGH from Bosch, the Yankees would only be able to impose a punishment no greater than the mandatory 50-game suspension stipulated for a first-time offender by baseball’s collectively bargained Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
In addition, seeing as the Yankees continued to honor the third baseman’s 10-year, $275 million contract extension after his public admissions in 2009 of PED use might further weaken their case to void the contract.
Even so, online betting fans have learned that Rodriguez’s latest injury, a torn hip labrum that required surgery that will keep him out of the lineup at least until after the All-Star break. This injury was the result of a congenital deformity and was not related to steroid use.
According to a source, the fact that the Yankees continued to honor Rodriguez’s 10-year, $275 million contract extension after his public admissions of PED use in 2009 might further weaken their case to void the contract.
