An official ruling on a possible suspension for New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez likely won't come until next week, the New York Post's Mike Puma reported Thursday.

According to Puma, it's likely that arbitrator Fredric Horowitz will wait a "few more days" before making a determination.

From Puma's article:

Initially, there was some thought Horowitz could make his ruling Thursday or Friday, but that now seems unlikely. Rodriguez’s camp had not been notified as of Thursday that a decision was forthcoming and did not expect anything to “come from out of the blue” before the end of the week.

Rodriguez's grievance hearing to overturn his 211-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball concluded in late November — with fireworks. Rodriguez stormed out of the hearing after Horowitz ruled that MLB commissioner Bud Selig did not have to testify. He called the hearing an "absurdity," an "injustice," and a farce.

Rodriguez was suspended by the league in August for alleged violations of baseball's drug policy. The suspension came after  the league's investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic in Florida. Rodriguez's lawyers have vowed to challenge the ruling in federal court if Rodriguez's suspension is not overturned.
