The grievance hearing over Alex Rodriguez's steroid suspension has now wrapped up.

The sides set a schedule to file briefs next month, which will close the record and submit the matter to the arbitrator, who will then decide whether to uphold the 211 game suspension given to A-Rod.

He could also reduce the suspension.

A person familiar with the proceedings tells the Associated Press that the ruling will likely come in January.

The proceedings finished up a day after the Yankees third baseman stormed out of the hearing, calling it a farce and saying that he was done with it.

Rodriguez was angry that Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig was not required to testify.

Selig suspended the slugger this summer for allegedly using steroids, but A-Rod was able to play while appealing the decision.
