A-Rod Starting Grievance Process; Yankees GM 'Not Comfortable' Talking to Him

On Sunday, as embattled New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and his representatives revealed they are formally in the beginning stages of a grievance process against the Yankees for allegedly sabotaging his health, New York general manager Brian Cashman said he was “not comfortable” talking to Rodriguez anymore because they are in a “litigious environment.”

“I’m not comfortable talking to Alex about this because we feel we are in a litigious environment,” Cashman said. “Hello and goodbye, that’s about it. I’m not comfortable talking to him anymore. I don’t want to be distorted.”

According to ESPN, “Alex Rodriguez’s lawyers contacted the Major League Baseball Players Association earlier this month to formally begin the grievance process into claims that the New York Yankees have mishandled his medical treatment since last October’s playoffs.”

This revelation comes a day after Rodriguez’s lawyer alleged that New York Yankees president Randy Levine told Rodriguez’s operating surgeon that he never wanted to see Rodriguez on the field again. 

Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games by Major League Baseball for violating the drug policy but is allowed to play while he is appealing the punishment.
