TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez says he'll have a day off from his injury rehab assignment Friday - leaving him free for a possible meeting with Major League Baseball investigators.
The New York Yankees third baseman is scheduled for the interview as part of baseball's probe of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, which is accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. Rodriguez has said he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has denied using them since.
Rodriguez says he has been told not to discuss the probe.
While it may take a long time for MLB to sort out whether A-Rod and others will be suspended, his short-term focus is on his comeback from hip surgery last winter.
He was 1 for 3 with an RBI single for Class A Tampa on Wednesday, leaving him 2 for 15. It was his first RBI in six minor league games.
