New York Yankess third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who has been linked to the clinic and is also accused of recruiting other players to the clinic, lying to MLB investigators about his relationship with the clinic and obstructing a MLB investigation, is expected to have his punishment handed down soon, possibly later today.
