Alex Rodriguez to meet with MLB about poker allegations Friday

4 Comments

Judgment day is nearly upon us. OK, not really.

Alex Rodriguez told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com before tonight’s game that he will meet with MLB’s investigators Friday in Baltimore to discuss his alleged involvement in illegal high-stakes poker games.

The topic du jour will likely be the report from Star Magazine and RadarOnline earlier this month, though they will probably also ask him about his reported presence at Mohegan Sun during his rehab assignment. MLB has warned Rodriguez about his gambling habits in the past, but he is not expected to face a suspension.

Just in case you missed it earlier tonight, Rodriguez is currently day-to-day after X-rays on his left thumb came back negative.
