Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez may be looking to work out a deal with Major League Baseball over his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs.
ESPN's Outside The Lines says A-Rod's representatives are talking to MLB officials about a settlement that could lead to a long suspension for the Yankees third baseman.
MLB reportedly is considering banning Rodriguez for life if he doesn't make a deal, but a settlement could mean a suspension of anywhere from 50 to 200 games.
A-Rod is among several players under investigation for their alleged ties to a Florida drug clinic.
He is nursing a strained quad in Tampa, Fla. and is expected to play a simulated game today, and a rehab game tomorrow.
