This story initially came and went without a ton of attention, but now it seems that MLB is taking a serious look into allegations that Alex Rodriguez participated in illegal, high-stakes poker games.
According to ESPNNewYork, Rodriguez could face suspension because he had been previously warned by the Yankees and the league to control his gambling.
“We’re talking to people involved in the investigation and we’re taking this very seriously,” an MLB executive told ESPNNewYork. “Because he had been warned about this before, I would say a possible suspension would be very much in play.”
Rodriguez allegedly participated in a series of underground poker games with several high-profile celebrities.
