AP source: A-Rod grievance hearing completed

Alex Rodriguez’s grievance hearing to overturn his 211-game suspension ended Thursday in New York after 12 days of sessions, a day after the New York Yankees third baseman angrily walked out and decided not to testify in his own defense. Rodriguez’s lawyers returned to Major League Baseball’s office for what turned out to be the final day of the proceeding before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. The next step is for the sides to submit briefs to Horowitz. The arbitrator then will decide whether to sustain or alter the suspension given to Rodriguez by MLB on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of baseball’s drug policy and labor agreement. – AP
