New York Yankees: Rodriguez, Alex

3B Alex Rodriguez continued his battle to overturn his 162-game suspension when his lawyers filed suit in U.S. District Court on Jan. 13, alleging arbitrator Fredric Horowitz was biased in his ruling. The suit, which hopes to vacate Horowitz's ruling, claims the arbitrator showed "manifest disregard for the law" as well as "evident partiality" and refusal "to entertain evidence that was pertinent and material to the outcome," according to the report.

The suit names Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association as defendants and uses Horowitz's written ruling on Rodriguez's appeal as one of its exhibits.

Chicago White Sox: Viciedo, Dayan

OF Dayan Viciedo and the White Sox avoided arbitration Jan. 13, agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract. Viciedo, 24, hit .265 with 14 homers in 124 games in 2013. He hit 25 homers in 2012 for the White Sox. Last season, Viciedo piled up 12 outfield assists, which ranked third in the American League.
