NEW YORK - Already in trouble with Major League Baseball, Alex Rodriguez now faces a penalty from his own team. The New York Yankees intend to discipline A-Rod for seeking a second medical opinion on his injured leg without their permission, a person familiar with the team's deliberations said Thursday. The exact penalty had not been determined, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity to the Associated Press because no statements were authorized. A fine appeared to be the most likely option.

NEW YORK - Alex Rodriguez certainly leads the Yankees in headlines this season even though he hasn't played a single major-league game. Injuries have kept him away from the team since last year's playoffs, and now he faces discipline from Major League Baseball in its drug investigation, possibly up to a lifetime ban. "The likelihood of a severe punishment for Rodriguez is very high," former MLB commissioner Fay Vincent said Wednesday. The three-time AL MVP, who turns 38 on Saturday, is among more than a dozen players MLB has targeted following allegations they were linked to Biogenesis, the Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.

Alex Rodriguez denied a newspaper report that accused him of buying human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances from a Miami-area clinic. The Miami New Times, an alternative weekly, reported Tuesday that it obtained records detailing purchases by Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon, Nelson Cruz, and Yasmani Grandal from a clinic called Biogenesis, run by Anthony Bosch. The paper also posted copies of what it said were Bosch's handwritten records, obtained through a former Biogenesis employee.

ALEX RODRIGUEZ was ensnared in a doping investigation once again Tuesday when an alternative weekly newspaper reported baseball's highest-paid star was among a half-dozen players listed in records of a Florida clinic the paper said sold performance-enhancing drugs. The Miami New Times said the three-time AL MVP bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, Fla., near Rodriguez's offseason home.

THE NEW YORK Yankees set a record for baseball's highest Opening Day payroll at $230.4 million, almost 10 times what the Houston Astros are paying their players. After all the talk of spending restraint during the offseason, the Yankees began the season well ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers are at $214.8 million and only the second franchise to break the $200 million barrier, according to a study of big-league contracts by the Associated Press. Houston was last at $27.3 million, less than the major league-leading $29 million for the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez.

THE OAKLAND Athletics traded All-Star closer Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Sweeney to Boston yesterday for outfielder Josh Reddick and prospects Miles Head and Raul Alcantara. In the deal, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine found a reliable ninth-inning guy to replace Jonathan Papelbon , who left for the Phillies as a free agent. Bailey - the 2009 AL Rookie of the Year who made the All-Star team that season and again in 2010 - is from Haddon Heights, N.J. The righthander, 27, went 0-4 with a 3.24 ERA and 24 saves in 41 2/3 innings this year.

NEW YORK - Clay Buchholz chilled the Yankees' bats, and Jackie Bradley Jr. got his first major-league hit as the Boston Red Sox beat the Yankees, 7-4, on a cold Wednesday night to open a season with consecutive wins for the first time since 1999. Righthander Hiroki Kuroda became the latest Yankee to get hurt, leaving in the second inning with a 2-0 deficit, four batters after Shane Victorino's line drive bruised the middle finger of his pitching hand. While the Red Sox under new manager John Farrell are off to their best start since going 5-0 in 1999, New York has been outscored by 15-6 and outhit by 26-15.

NEW YORK general manager Brian Cashman characterized as "false" a blog post by political pundit Keith Olbermann claiming the Yankees recently had discussions with the Miami Marlins about trading Alex Rodriguez to his hometown. Olbermann posted the item Wednesday afternoon on his only occasionally updated Baseball Nerd blog, which is affiliated with MLB. The item read, in part: "The New York Yankees have held discussions with the Miami Marlins about a trade involving their third baseman in crisis, Alex Rodriguez.

The Boston Red Sox have gone from one of the quietest managers in baseball in Terry Francona to a guy who seems determined to challenge Ozzie Guillen as the loudest. Bobby Valentine has been the Red Sox manager for about five minutes and he's already taking pot shots at the Yankees. In one fell swoop on Tuesday, Valentine said Derek Jeter didn't need to make the flip-to-home relay in the 2001 playoffs that stands as one of the most celebrated plays in Yankees lore, and fondly recalled the time when Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek "beat up" Alex Rodriguez in 2004.

TAMPA, Fla. - Six years ago they were World Series headliners and at the peak of their popularity in their respective cities. Ryan Howard had just hit .333 with two home runs and eight RBIs, winning the NLCS MVP in the Phillies' five-game series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He had carried his team back to a second straight World Series for the first time in franchise history. Alex Rodriguez had batted .438 with five home runs and 12 RBIs in nine playoff games to help the New York Yankees get back to the World Series for the first time since 2003.

Twelve of the 13 players involved in baseball's Biogenesis investigation, including Phillies relief pitcher Antonio Bastardo, accepted 50-game suspensions Monday. However, the biggest name in the sport's latest drug scandal, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees, remained locked in a legal rundown with Major League Baseball. Rodriguez said he intends to appeal his suspension for the remainder of this season and all of 2014. He can continue to play until that process is complete.

This planned show of force by Major League Baseball is quickly devolving into farce. If Alex Rodriguez plays baseball Monday night in Chicago, within hours of being suspended for 50 or 150 or 214 games, commissioner Bud Selig's attempted display of strength will serve only to remind everyone how weak MLB has been throughout the steroid era. That is fitting, because Rodriguez apparently has been cheating in plain sight throughout his career, just...

NEW YORK - Brian Cashman's expression said it all. Every time Alex Rodriguez' name was mentioned yesterday, the New York Yankees general manager appeared as if he might get sick. The subject was the third baseman's claim that his left quadriceps really isn't injured, but it could have been any one of several topics: Rodriguez' alleged performance-enhancing drug use, his pesky Twitter and radio appearances or his knack for creating tabloid headlines. Cashman challenged A-Rod to have his leg examined by an outside doctor, defending the team's medical and training staff and saying he wouldn't comment on "extra noise.

MICHAEL JORDAN thought he was fixed for life. Turns out his wife has other ideas. Jose Lambiet, of Gossip Extra, citing a source close to Jordan, reported that the former NBA star has agreed to reverse a vasectomy he allegedly got after he divorced his first wife. The 50-year-old Jordan already has three grown children, but the report said he made the decision because his new wife, 35-year-old ex-model Yvette Prieto, wants kids. And apparently, she was - you'll excuse the pun - a bit snippy about it. "That was part of the deal of them getting married," the source told Gossip Extra.

NEW YORK YANKEES third baseman Alex Rodriguez isn't ready to rejoin the team. The Yankees said Rodriguez has a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps muscle and won't be able to return this week in Texas, as had been planned. Instead, he will remain on the disabled list and return to Tampa, Fla., "for rest and treatment," the Yankees said in a statement issued before their game against the Red Sox last night in Boston. Rodriguez and manager Joe Girardi had said they were hoping he would return for tomorrow night's game against the Rangers.
