A-Rod camp files complaint, says MLB leaked lie to media
Sunday, a New York Times report said Alex Rodriguez tested positive for a stimulant in 2006. Now A-Rod's attorneys have filed a complaint, alleging MLB lied and leaked the information to the media.
So, shockingly (obvious sarcasm alert!), there's a reply from the A-Rod camp. According to the New York Daily News, attorneys for A-Rod filed an application (complaint) with arbitrator Fredric Horowitz that alleges that Major League Baseball leaked the information to the media about the 2006 test -- also denying that A-Rod tested positive.
Rodriguez's arbitration hearing -- in which he's appealing his 211-game suspension for his ties to Biogenesis, among other things according to MLB -- is on a break until Nov. 18.
Rodriguez, 38, hit .244/.348/.423 with seven doubles, seven homers and 19 RBI in 44 games this past season for the Yankees. He has four years and $86 million left on his albatross of a contract.
