Weiner outlined the matter in much more detail, saying the union is pushing to keep any public announcements of suspensions from happening until a full appeals process can be conducted. Weiner does not expect those appeals to happen before September, meaning it is unlikely the situation will have a direct on-field impact on the '13 season. "It's going to take some time – I don't know about months – for the commissioner's office to finish its investigation," he said. Weiner also said because the Biogenesis investigation delves into non-analytic positives, MLB is not necessarily bound by the 50-game/100-game/life schedule of suspensions in the joint drug agreement and conceivably could implement suspensions of various lengths.
