NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball has told the union which players it intends to suspend in its drug investigation and which ones will receive lengthier penalties for their roles in the Biogenesis case, two people familiar with the talks told The Associated Press. Nike Air Force 1 High Baratas . The sides are trying to reach as many agreements as possible that would avoid grievance hearings, and talks could push back an announcement until Friday. The meeting between MLB and the union on Tuesday, first reported by the New York Daily News, signalled the final stretch of talks. MLB hopes to announce the penalties for all players involved at the same time, both people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcements were authorized. Three-time MVP Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees stands to receive the longest suspension. While 50 games is the standard for a first offence, the stiffer penalties for some players are tied to other alleged violations, including not being truthful to MLB investigators. Three 2013 All-Stars could face bans: Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz, San Diego shortstop Everth Cabrera and Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta. In a sign Peraltas suspension might be imminent, the Tigers acquired shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston on Tuesday night as part of a three-way trade with the Chicago White Sox. Another 2013 All-Star, Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon, was suspended last year following a positive testosterone test, as were Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. They wont receive additional discipline for that violation, the two people said. Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Seattle catcher Jesus Montero also have been linked in media reports to Biogenesis, a closed Florida anti-aging clinic that was accused by Miami New Times in January of distributing banned performing-enhancing drugs. Melky Cabrera was the 2012 All-Star game MVP while with San Francisco and Colon won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award with the Los Angeles Angels. Players who dont reach agreements can ask the players association to file grievances, which would lead to hearings before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. Discipline for first offenders under the drug agreement usually is not announced until after the penalty is upheld, but there is an exception when the conduct leading to the discipline already has been made public. In addition, MLB may try to suspend Rodriguez under its collective bargaining agreement instead of its drug rules, which would lead to the suspension starting before the appeal. Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun was the first player to reach an agreement with MLB. The 2011 NL MVP accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension last week. Braun tested positive for elevated testosterone in October 2011 but a 50-game suspension was overturned the following February by an arbitrator who ruled Brauns urine sample was handled improperly. Rodriguez faces the harshest penalty. The Yankees expected him to be accused of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, attempting to obstruct MLBs investigation, and not being truthful with MLB in the past when he discussed his relationship with Dr. Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty two years ago to a federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States from Canada. "A-Rod was my teammate in New York. Im glad he was my teammate," retired pitcher Roger Clemens said Tuesday in Boston, where he was at Fenway Park to mark the 25th anniversary of manager Joe Morgans team that won the 1988 AL East title. "I did things to make him feel comfortable. I did that for all of my teammates," Clemens said. "I think I was a pretty solid teammate." The seven-time Cy Young Award winner was acquitted last year of federal charges he lied to Congress when he said he didnt take steroids or human growth hormone. Clemens would not give his thoughts on MLBs Biogenesis investigation. "Ive got my own feelings on particular people in MLB, you know, how they approached my situation," he said. "I dont know about it, and I dont care about it, to tell you the truth." Nike Air Force 1 Low Baratas . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St. Nike Air Force 1 Low Mujer Baratas . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Jabrill Peppers unquestionably is one of the most athletic college football players in the nation.The Michigan sophomore also is inserting himself into the Heisman Trophy conversation.Peppers all-around talents will be on display again when the No. 4 Wolverines (3-0) open Big Ten play by hosting Penn State (2-1) on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC).Once again, Peppers is expected to line up all over the field in the same fashion as last Saturdays victory over Colorado when he recorded a career-high nine tackles and totaled 204 all-purpose yards -- including a 54-yard punt-return touchdown.Peppers was a strong safety on defense last season before Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown elected to move him to strong-side linebacker. The switch is allowing Peppers to roam freely around the back end and even creep into the box. The Wolverines are also incorporating him into the offense just as they did last season.I cant think of another player like Jabrill -- I know theres not another player that Ive coached like him, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said at a press conference. The unique thing is all the positions he can play.You start counting them: It would be safety, corner, nickel, outside linebacker. It would be slot receiver, wildcat quarterback, running back, kick returner, punt returner, gunner, hold-up.Thats 11 right there, and I know theres others he could do. But those are all the things hes done already here for us. And hes done them all well. Hes a special type of athlete and special football player.Peppers hears those types of compliments all the time and just takes them in stride.But finding out his all-purpose yardage was over 200 yards? Now that is the type of production that impresses him.That was me? Peppers asked, pointing a finger at himself. Wow ... really? Two hundred and four yards, wow. Wow! Thats crazy. I didnt even think about it like that. I just tried to do whatever I could, man.We were down, and when you are one of the playmakers, one of the guys who makes the team go, youve got to take it upon yourself to just try to make something happen.The Wolverines are averaging 53 points per game as they entertain a Penn State squad that has allowed an average of 34.5 over the past two games.The Nittany Lions possted a 34-27 victory over Temple last week after losing a 42-39 shootout to Pittsburgh the previous weekend. Zapatillas Nike Air Force 1 Low. Penn State lost one of its better defenders in the win over Temple when senior linebacker Nyeem Wartman-White sustained a season-ending knee injury. It marks the second straight season in which Wartman-White, who has a team-high 3 1/2 tackles for losses, experienced an early-season injury.Feel terrible for Nyeem Wartman-White, Nittany Lions coach James Franklin said at a press conference. He will be out for the season, which is obviously significant. I feel for Nyeem because hes had two years in a row now where hes missed the season and has worked really, really hard and has had an unbelievable attitude from a leadership standpoint as well.The unit will attempt to move forward behind junior safety Marcus Allen, who leads the squad with 21 tackles.Offensively, sophomore running back Saquon Barkley has rushed for 258 yards and six touchdowns. Sophomore quarterback Trace McSorley has shown promise by passing for 828 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions as the replacement for NFL second-round pick Christian Hackenberg.The Nittany Lions are aware they are viewed as huge underdogs as they head into Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines hold a 12-7 edge in the series and are 6-3 in the venerable facility.Ive gone to some away games that were pretty hostile, junior linebacker Brandon Smith said at a press conference. I think it just gets the guys even more excited sometimes when people are jeering you and mocking you and all sorts of things. You know, you can either get distracted by it or it can increase your intensity and your focus.Michigan is hoping to have standout senior cornerback Jourdan Lewis on the field for the first time this season. Lewis has been sidelined by back, hamstring and quadriceps injuries.Wolverines sophomore quarterback Wilton Speight has put together three straight strong outings and has passed for 686 yards and eight touchdowns against one interception. Senior receiver Amara Darboh is averaging 20.4 yards with four of his 10 catches going for touchdowns. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
