Embattled New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez asked a federal judge on Monday to throw out an arbitrator's decision suspending him for the entire 2014 baseball season for doping, escalating a battle with Major League Baseball that shows no signs of abating.

Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled on Saturday that Rodriguez, baseball's highest paid player, would miss all 162 games this year as well as the playoffs.

The ban, which was lower than the 211 games MLB had sought, is the longest ever in baseball for the use of performance-enhancing drugs and will cost Rodriguez $25 million in salary.
