by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:35 pm ET) Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said that embattled Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez "ought to be welcomed back" by baseball, per the New York Daily News. The 39-year-old Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 due to his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.

"Alex served a very long suspension," Manfred said. "Once he served that time, baseball ought to welcome him back – and I think we've done a good job. The institution as a whole; teams, central baseball, everybody. He's played well. Good for him."

Manfred also added that Rodriguez will be subjected to more testing after his 162-game ban. 

"Let me be clear about this; he'll be tested exactly like every other player who has violated the program," Manfred said. "The program requires more frequent testing for players who are coming back after a suspension."
