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.''
