A day after an initial conference in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the feuding sides filed paperwork Friday explaining their intended motions.
MLB says the case should be heard in federal court because of provisions of the Labor Management Relations Act, known as Taft-Hartley.
Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games by MLB in August for alleged violations of the sport's drug agreement and labor contract. The New York Yankees third baseman was allowed to keep playing until arbitrator Fredric Horowitz decides a grievance filed by the players' union to overturn the penalty.
A hearing before U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield is scheduled for Jan. 23.
