Major League Baseball To Alex Rodriguez's Lawyer: Let Us Release Evidence

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball is challenging Alex Rodriguez's lawyer to allow the sport to make public the evidence that led to the 211-game suspension of the New York Yankees star.

MLB executive vice president Rob Manfred wrote to lawyer Joseph Tacopina on Monday, urging him to waive his client's confidentiality.

He says the league would disclose "all drug tests" and "all prior violations" of Rodriguez, plus documents related to the player's relationships with Anthony Bosch, Dr. Anthony Galea and Victor Conte, and evidence tied to whether Rodriguez obstructed MLB's investigation of the Biogenesis clinic.

According to the letter, which was released by MLB, Rodriguez's side also would be able to disclose documents.

Interviewed on NBC's "Today" show, Tacopina did not say whether he would agree to Manfred's request. He did not respond to a message from The Associated Press.

Rodriguez is playing pending his appeal, which is not expected to be decided by an arbitrator until November at the earliest.
