NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez has expanded his assault on the baseball establishment with a lawsuit accusing the Yankees team physician and a New York City hospital of mishandling his medical care during the 2012 AL playoffs.

Lawyers for Rodriguez say in a suit filed late Friday that he was given an MRI exam on Oct. 11, 2012, that revealed an injury to his left hip joint.

The suit said that Yankees physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad of New York Presbyterian Hospital did not inform him of the tear and instead cleared him to continue playing. They say that caused Rodriguez “great pain.”

The Yankees maintain that at the time, Rodriguez had been complaining only of a problem with his right hip, not the left one.
