Before receiving a huge suspension and deciding to go head-to-head with MLB in a heated legal battle, Alex Rodriguez was recovering from hip surgery after being injured during the 2012 playoffs.
Well now he might have a little feud with his own team, as the New York Yankees are now saying his steroid use led to his injury!
According to A-Rod's camp, Dr. Chris Ahmad misdiagnosed his injury and caused him to miss playing time due to surgery. However, some are claiming that the troubled baseballer is simply trying to divert attention away from his steroid scandal!
A source reveals:
"The Yankees organization is fed up with Rodriguez and these outrageous claims being made by his advisers. They are attempting to once again deflect attention from the real issue, Alex’s use of steroids."
The Yankees are sticking to their guns and say any claims that they were conspiring with Dr. Ahmad are a bunch of bull poop! But they're more than ready to take Alex on in court, because they have a little trick up their sleeve!
The source goes on to say:
"The Yankees would immediately seek to depose Alex and force him to answer under oath about his use of steroids. He will have to answer the questions truthfully and under penalty of perjury."
Yikes! Sounds like A-Rod may have shot himself in the foot here!
Alex has continued to suit up and play for the Bronx Bombers despite the steroid circus, but if he's not careful, his own team probably wont want anything to do with him!
