NEW YORK -- According to a story by T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish of ESPN's "Outside the Lines,", Major League Baseball is expected to hand down suspensions to Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, along with as many as 20 others, sometime after the All-Star break as a result of the Biogenesis investigation.

A source confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com that A-Rod will meet with MLB investigators on Friday, as first reported by the New York Daily News. The source also said A-Rod is unlikely to answer any questions. Braun reportedly did not answer questions in a recent meeting with baseball's investigators.

ESPNNewYork.com is in Tampa tonight, where A-Rod is playing in a rehab game for the Class A Tampa Yankees, and will seek a comment from the Yankees third baseman sometime tonight.
