Bad boy of baseball, Alex Rodriguez is suing Major League Baseball claiming the league interfered with his contracts and business relationships.
Rodriguez claims in the lawsuit that MLB bought the cooperation of the chief witness against him. Rodriguez’s people also claim that Anthony Bosch, the head of the Biogenesis clinic has been paid $5 million by MLB to help force Rodriguez out of the game, according to the Times.
Rodriguez’s lawyers are saying that the league is trying to make an example out of the baseball player.
MLB commissioner Bud Selig was named a defendant in the lawsuit, which was earlier reported by the New York Times. Selig hasn’t made any comments on the matter.
This is the statement that Rodriguez released:
“The entire legal dynamic is very complex, and my legal team is doing what they need to in order to vindicate me and pursue all of my rights,” the statement says. “This matter is entirely separate from the ongoing arbitration proceedings continuing, and for the day to come when I can share my story with the public and my supporters.”
Rodriguez was one of the 14 players penalized by MLB this year after the investigation of Biogenesis of America.
