Jan. 2nd: It is unlikely Horowitz will announce his ruling today or tomorrow, reports Mike Puma. A-Rod’s camp has not yet been notified of a forthcoming decision and nothing is expected to “come from out of the blue” this week. Sounds like it’ll be next week at the earliest.
Dec. 23rd: Via Bob Klapisch: MLB expects the ruling from Alex Rodriguez’s arbitration case in early January, perhaps right after New Year’s. The appeal hearing ended a little more than a month ago. The Yankees appear to be waiting for the ruling before making any more infield additions, so, needless to say, the sooner the ruling is handed down, the better.
