Alex Rodriguez's Lawyer Says Yankees Hid Injury from Star Slugger

The rocky relationship between the New York Yankees and Alex Rodriguez appears to have taken a turn for the worse.

The star third baseman's newly retained lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, is raising accusations that the club attempted to shorten A-Rod's career by playing him when he was injured, per Steve Eder of the New York Times. 

During the 2012 playoffs, Tacopina said, the Yankees hid from Rodriguez that a magnetic resonance imaging test had revealed that he had a torn labrum — essentially a hole in his hip — and continued to play him, even though he was struggling mightily.

“They rolled him out there like an invalid and made him look like he was finished as a ballplayer,” Tacopina said.
