  • Article by: RONALD BLUM , AP Sports Writer

A: More than a dozen players have been linked in media reports to Biogenesis, among them Braun, the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez and Francisco Cervelli; Texas' Nelson Cruz; Detroit's Jhonny Peralta; Oakland's Bartolo Colon; San Diego's Everth Cabrera and Yasmani Grandal; Toronto's Melky Cabrera; and Seattle's Jesus Montero.

Q: WILL ADDITIONAL PLAYERS ACCEPT SUSPENSIONS OR CONTEST THEM?

A: Remains to be seen. The union expects MLB will approach it with contemplated penalties for players and the evidence MLB feels backs up the discipline. Each player will then decide whether to accept the discipline, contest it or try to reach a negotiated agreement similar to the manner in which Braun did.

___

Q: HOW LONG WILL THE PROCESS TAKE?

A: With Braun having accepted a suspension, MLB is expected to move on to other players. Absent an agreement, the union says it will ask that a suspension not be announced until the arbitrator makes a decision on the grievance, but management may ask that suspensions be announced before grievances. If the sides can't agree, Horowitz will decide.

Q: WHAT IS A-ROD'S STATUS?

A: He remains on the New York Yankees' disabled list. Following hip surgery in January, he hit .200 (8 for 40) with two homers and eight RBIs in 13 games during a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment. He injured a quadriceps last weekend, and it isn't clear whether MLB will attempt to suspend him before he can come off the DL. With MLB's highest salary at $28 million, A-Rod stands to lose the most of any player. His salary declines to $25 million next year.
