A-Rod denies implicating other players in doping fiasco

Washington, Aug 17 (ANI): Doping accused Yankees star Alex Rodriguez has rejected allegations that his former inner circle had obtained and leaked documents that implicated Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun and Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli in the recent doping scandal.

According to CBS News, Rodriguez revealed that he had spoken to Cervelli and both the players were on the same page, adding that the allegations were not true.

The leak came just days after the weekly newspaper Miami New Times published documents in January detailing Rodriguez's pervasive use of performance enhancing drugs, the report said.

Rodriguez's lawyer David Cornwell said that the allegations are untrue and are another attempt to harm Alex, this time by driving a wedge between Alex and other players in the game. (ANI)
