Alex Rodriguez will be suspended through the 2014 season in an announcement that will be officially made Monday by Major League Baseball, according to reports. 

The Associated Press reported that a person who is familiar with deliberations said that the New York Yankees third baseman can play Monday against the Chicago White Sox while he appeals the penalty. 

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because no announcement has yet to be released. 

"He'll either be suspended for 200 games or forever," a source told The Daily News. "They want to get deals with everybody else first."

Rodriguez, 38, could be suspended for at least 214 games under terms of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, which will cost him about $34 million. Most likely he will not get a lifetime ban from the MLB for allegedly violating the Collective Bargaining Agreement, USA Today noted. 

The penalty would make Rodriguez unable to play baseball until the 2015 regular season.

Rodriguez previously admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-03 while playing for the Texas Rangers, but denied any involvement with PED's since joining the Yankees in 2004.

Enstars reported back in January that Rodriguez is accused of purchasing human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a former anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, Fla., a few miles from Rodriguez's offseason home.

MLB investigators have reportedly collected more than enough evidence during their Biogenesis investigation that proves Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs from 2010-2012. 

"We are always extremely disappointed to learn of potential links between players and the use of performance-enhancing substances,'' MLB said in an earlier statement. ''We are in the midst of an active investigation and are gathering and reviewing information.''
