TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Union head Tony Clark says the players' association has no issues going forward with suspended New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and the players' association in January in an effort to overturn a season-long suspension, then dropped the lawsuit this month. Rodriguez initially was suspended for 211 games in August by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, and the union filed a grievance to overturn the discipline. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz shortened the penalty after a hearing the three-time AL MVP claimed was flawed.
Clark says "the page has been turned."
The new union head met Monday with Yankees players.
