A-Rod Grievance Hearing Resumes

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK, N.Y. -

Alex Rodriguez is back at Major League Baseball's office for the resumption of the grievance hearing to overturn his 211-game suspension.

Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz already has presided over eight days of sessions, from Sept. 30-Oct. 3 and from Oct. 15-18. Rodriguez's legal team was set to call witnesses when the hearing resumed.

It was unclear whether the New York Yankees third baseman would testify. He had been scheduled for an investigatory interview with MLB on Friday, but the session was canceled when Rodriguez's side said he was ill with flu-like systems and could not travel from California.

Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games by MLB on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of the sport's drug agreement and labor contract, and the players' association filed a grievance to overturn the penalty.
