The Major League Baseball Players Association has lodged an official appeal against the 211-game ban that was imposed on Alex Rodriguez this week.

The New York Yankees batter was issued with the severe suspension after being found guilty of doping.

But this appeal means that he is now free to play until the case is resolved. The initial ruling would have prevented A-Rod from playing any part in the 2014 season, as well as the remainder of this year.

A link to a Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Florida was key to the sanctioning of this ban, and 12 other players were also struck with 50-game suspensions.

As yet, the Yankees star is the only indicted player to launch an appeal.

Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz will chair the committee who will listen to Rodriguez's case. The ban could remain as it is, although it could also be reduced or even revoked all together.

38-year-old Rodriguez has been in action against the Chicago White Sox this week.
