Cameron Diaz - New York Yankees Star Alex Rodriguez Facing Baseball Suspension

Cameron Diaz's ex-boyfriend Alex Rodriguez has been named among 12 professional baseball players who the sport's top officials have earmarked for lengthy suspensions for using banned drugs.

Rodriguez's suspension, which will sideline him until the 2015 season, will become effective on Thursday (08Aug13), but the New York Yankees third baseman will return to the major leagues on Monday night (05Aug13), after a lengthy injury kept him from the line-up.

The sportsman is expected to file a grievance about his 211-game band within the next 72 hours, which will enable him to play during his appeal.

In a statement he says, "I am disappointed with the penalty and intend to appeal and fight this through the process."

Rodriguez is the lone hold-out linked to the sport's latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal. The other 11 stars named have all accepted 50-game penalties following the Mlb's most recent drug investigation.

The slugger's teammates Francisco Cervelli and outfielder Fernando Martinez are among the 11 who have accepted their suspensions.
