Major League Baseball has gone to federal court to seek access to sealed grand jury records in a case that involves a physician who had previously treated New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and other professional athletes, according to ESPN.
The motion was filed in Buffalo, N.Y., Wednesday.
MLB officials are seeking additional information and testimony involving Anthony Galea, who brought unapproved drugs including human growth hormone and Actovegin into the U.S., which Galea pled guilty to in 2011.
Rodriguez appealed the 211-game suspension he received from MLB for his involvement with Biogenesis, a lab in South Florida that treated a number of high-profile athletes including Rodriguez and Tiger Woods.
The ESPN report said it’s unclear what MLB investigators hope to learn if the records are unsealed. Speculation includes possibly comparing what Rodriguez told MLB officials with what he told the grand jury while under oath.
