A-Rod Expected To Meet With MLB Officials In Biogenesis Probe
Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez today is expected to meet in Tampa with MLB officials who "want to grill him about his alleged association with Anthony Bosch and the Biogenesis clinic." The session will include Rodriguez and his counsel, two MLB officials, two MLBPA officials and "possibly a court stenographer" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 7/12).
Meanwhile, MLBPA Exec Dir Michael Weiner yesterday issued a statement that read in part, "The leaking of confidential information to members of the media interferes with the thoroughness and credibility of the Biogenesis investigation. These repeated leaks threaten to harm the integrity of the Joint Drug Agreement and call into question the required level of confidentiality needed to operate a successful prevention program." The union issued a later statement stating it has "no information about the source of the leaks" and "no information that indicates MLB is the source" (THE DAILY).
