One of Alex Rodriguez's lawyers wants Major League Baseball to release testimony about whether Commissioner Bud Selig knew Anthony Bosch distributed banned substances to teenagers.
Major League Baseball's No. 2 executive testified that the sport wasn't concerned if the head of a Florida clinic distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLB's sole interest was his relationship with players under investigation, a person familiar with the Alex Rodriguez grievance hearing told The Associated Press.
The lawsuit, filed Thursday in New York State Supreme Court, seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for what it alleges was a relentless campaign by the league and Selig to "destroy the reputation and career of Alex Rodriguez."
Alex Rodriguez said Wednesday he's cutting off all non-baseball talk after a wild weekend of accusations and retaliations on and off the field.
Pick through the debris from the Nationals' busted season and few scraps elicit more head-scratching than Monday's acquisition of David DeJesus.
Major League Baseball's evidence against Alex Rodriguez is so weak he shouldn't serve even one inning of his 211-game suspension, the lawyer for the Yankees slugger said Monday.
Major League Baseball is challenging Alex Rodriguez's lawyer to allow the sport to make public the evidence that led to the 211-game suspension of the New York Yankees star.

Braun got a 65-game vacation. The Brewers are buried in another futile season. He misses a couple of months and around $3 million in salary. Big deal. Seven years and $127 million remain on his contract. That gold mine isn't touched. This is a speedbump, not a deterrent.
Ryan Braun stood on a spring training field and proclaimed he was innocent of using banned testosterone.
In March, MLB filed a civil lawsuit that wasn't intended to right a wrong, but, instead, to dredge up evidence to punish players that otherwise wouldn't be obtainable and, in the process, tidy up the game that isn't as clean as Bud Selig believed.
The lawyer who helped overturn Ryan Braun's drug suspension last year has been added to Alex Rodriguez's legal team.
Major League Baseball's lawyers issued subpoenas to Federal Express, AT&T Mobility and T-Mobile USA in an attempt to gain records for its investigation of players suspected of using performance-enhancing drugs.
Baseball's probe was boosted when Anthony Bosch, who ran Biogenesis, agreed last month to cooperate with the sport's investigators.
