Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was one of 13 Major League Baseball players who were suspended on Monday for receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a Miami wellness clinic, the league announced on Monday.

Rodriguez received a 211-game ban from the league, which would be effective on Aug. 8 and last through the end of the 2014 season. He is appealing the ban, the league said, and is eligible to play until an appeals verdict is rendered.

The bans to the other players linked with Biogenesis are effective immediately, which knocks out those players for virtually all of the remaining games this season. They would be eligible for the postseason, should their teams reach and the terms of their suspensions end.
