All you need to know: MLB rumors, news roundup for Jan. 11
There wasn't much baseball news on Saturday ... aside from Alex Rodriguez's record suspension, of course.
After weeks and months of waiting, the ruling in Alex Rodriguez's appeal hearing was handed down on Saturday. The three-time AL MVP was suspended 162 games plus the entirety of the 2014 postseason by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. The ruling has some hot stove implications as the Yankees suddenly need a third baseman and have an extra $25 million to spend.
Aside from the A-Rod ruling -- which is the biggest story of the offseason, in the grand scheme of things -- there wasn't much baseball news on Saturday. No major transactions or anything like that. Here's a rundown of the day's action.
