NEW YORK (AP) – Alex Rodriguez has withdrawn his lawsuits against Major League Baseball, Commissioner Bud Selig and the players’ association to overturn his season-long suspension, a sign the New York Yankees third baseman may be prepared to accept the penalty.

The notices of dismissal in the two lawsuits were filed Friday in federal court in Manhattan.

Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games last Aug. 5 for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract, and arbitrator Fredric Horowitz cut the penalty on Jan. 11 to 162 games plus the 2014 postseason.

Rodriguez sued two days later.
