Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is being accused of lying and cheating, but now he is also facing accusations of being a snitch. According to a "60 Minutes" report, members of A-Rod's inner circle leaked documents from Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch to Yahoo! Sports back in February containing information about Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun and A-Rod's own teammate Francisco Cervelli.
In a statement to "60 Minutes," A-Rod attorney David Cornwell denied the allegations:
"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. While Alex focuses on baseball and repeatedly states that he is going to respect the appeal process, the drumbeat of false allegations continues."
Braun is currently serving a 65-game suspension while Cervelli is serving a 50-game suspension for their role in the Biogenesis scandal. If this report ends up being true, it could help back MLB's claim that A-Rod obstructed their investigation into the Florida based clinic.
