New York, NY (Sports Network) - New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has officially filed an appeal against a 211-game suspension handed to him from Thursday through the 2014 season for violations of baseball's drug agreement and labor contract.

Multiple media sources reported the appeal for Rodriguez, who was among 13 players suspended by MLB on Monday following an investigation into Biogenesis of America.

The other 12 players accepted 50-game suspensions for their connection to the now-closed South Florida anti-aging clinic accused of supplying performance- enhancing substances.

By appealing, Rodriguez is eligible to play until his case is heard by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, though a final decision could conceivably not come until after the World Series.
