MLB Sides rest in A-Rod's grievance hearing

One day after Alex Rodriguez stormed out of the grievance hearing appealing his 211-game suspension, his lawyer returned to the bargaining table Thursday in New York for the 12th and final session of the process.

According to The Associated Press, both sides then rested their cases. Now both sides will submit their briefs to independent arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, who will rule on or amend Major League Baseball's penalty for Rodriguez's alleged violations of the sport's Joint Drug Agreement. Horowitz's decision could come in January, according to The AP.

The AP cited a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity because no statements had been authorized.

One member of A-Rod's legal team, Jim McCarroll, issued a statement Thursday saying that this case is the first grievance under the drug agreement involving discipline that didn't stem from a positive test and involved "the Commissioner's discretion and decision-making." A dozen other players received lesser suspensions for their alleged connection to the now-shuttered Biogenesis anti-aging clinic but chose not to appeal.

McCarroll had said Wednesday that before Rodriguez walked out, he had been scheduled to testify on Friday.
