All eyes are on Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez in the baseball world, and they are currently on Trenton, New Jersey, where he's set to play another rehab game Saturday as a suspension threat still looms.

Rodriguez walked, hit a long home run and struck out in a rehab game in Trenton Friday night. He was pulled from the game after the fifth inning.

Rodriguez said he wants to rejoin the Yankees Monday in Chicago, but a suspension for ties to a Florida drug clinic could keep that from happening.

Multiple reports say suspensions for several players are coming down Monday, and the prevailing thought is that Rodriguez would get a suspension through next season or a lifetime ban.

Speaking after Friday night's game, Rodriguez said he feels singled out, and appeared to take a shot at Yankee ownership.

"I think we all agree that we want to get rid of PEDs. That's a must. I think all the players, we feel that way," Rodriguez said. "But when all this stuff is going on in the background, and people are finding creative ways to cancel your contract and stuff like that, I think that's concerning for me, it's concerning for present and I think it should be concerning for future players, as well."

Rodriguez has said he'll fight any suspension.

It's unclear if he'll be able to play during an appeal.
