Alex Rodriguez's appeal of his 211-game suspension will resume Wednesday at Major League Baseball headquarters in Manhattan, two people familiar with the arbitration hearing said Wednesday.

Last week, Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch gave testimony to MLB and was cross examined by Rodriguez’s attorneys. Bosch, who ran the now-shuttered anti-aging clinic in Miami, is alleged to have provided performance-enhancing drugs to the Yankees third baseman and other players.

With Bosch’s testimony now concluded, the pace of the hearing is expected to quicken, a source said, though several more sessions are likely before the process ends. At that time, arbitrator Fredric Horowitz will have up to 25 days to uphold, overturn or alter the suspension.
