NEW YORK (WGGB) — Major League Baseball’s Players’ Association says any suspensions resulting from the most recent performance-enhancing drug investigation will not be served until next year. The delay will come following an expected challenge of the suspensions before an arbitrator.

The MLB will notify the union of any penalties within the next month, who will then bring it before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz.

Union head Michael¬†Weiner says that because of the time needed to prepare and hold hearings, the case of any player challenging a penalty won’t be decided during this season.

The announcement comes after rumors circulated around when suspensions may be issued against stars such as Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. They were two of the players mentioned in the investigation alleging ties to Biogenesis, a now-closed clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs.

Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch allegedly provided PEDs to the roughly 20 players, but Rodriguez has denied any connection to Bosch.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig has made little comment on the potential suspensions.
