NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees general manager Brian Cashman challenged Alex Rodriguez to have his leg examined by an outside doctor, defending the team’s medical and training staff and saying he wouldn’t comment on “extra noise.”

The third baseman claims his left quadriceps really isn’t injured and detailed his frustration during a radio interview, just hours after team management said he wouldn’t be ready to resume minor league rehab games until Aug. 1.

Cashman says “the MRI is the MRI. It’s fact. You can’t change the results on an MRI,” then added Friday: “We’re very comfortable with it, and if anybody wants to utilize the process in place with the union, go right ahead. It’s not something we’re afraid of.”
