AP Source: A-Rod adds Braun's lawyer to team

  •  

NEW YORK (AP) - The lawyer who helped overturn Ryan Braun's drug suspension last year has been added to Alex Rodriguez's legal team.

A person familiar with the hiring said Friday that David Cornwell has joined Jay Reisinger to represent Rodriguez in baseball's drug investigation. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was authorized.

His hiring was first reported by ESPN.

Cornwell successfully argued the grievance filed by the players' association on behalf of Braun, whose positive drug test was thrown out by an arbitrator in February 2012 because the collector of the urine sample didn't take it directly to a Federal Express office on a Saturday evening and instead kept it at home until Monday.
