Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig, claiming that his career is being damaged from wrongful allegations of illegal performance-enhancing drug use.
He is seeking unspecified damages.
Rodriguez, suspended from 211 games by Major League Baseball for doping, claims MLB interfered with his contracts and business relationships.
In August, MLB suspended Rodriguez through the end of the 2014. The Yankee third-baseman was one of 13 players suspended for their alleged links with a Florida clinic accused of supplying players with performance-enhancing drugs.
Rodriguez, 38, has denied wrongdoing and appealed the ruling. A decision is not expected until after the season has ended.
As A-Rod sues to try to overturn the ruling, the other players involved have all accepted 50 game bans.
