Notes: Yankees intend to punish Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez’s already strained relationship with the Yankees hit another low when he pushed to be activated from the disabled list Friday, the team refused, and he had a lawyer join the discussion of his injury rehabilitation.

Already a target of Major League Baseball’s drug investigation, the third baseman angered the Yankees when he obtained a second medical opinion on his strained left quadriceps this week without informing the team in writing, a step required by the sport’s collective bargaining agreement. The Yankees intend to discipline him, most likely with a fine.
