Source: MLB Wants Grand Jury Records In A-Rod Case

Yankees_Alex_Rodriguez_2013Major League Baseball has filed a motion in a Buffalo federal court seeking access to sealed grand jury records in a case against a well-known sports physician who previously treated New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and other high-profile professional athletes, multiple sources have told “Outside the Lines.”

Anthony Galea, a go-to doctor who treated A-Rod, Tiger Woods and dozens of other injured elite athletes, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge in 2011 of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States, including human growth hormone and Actovegin. The Galea investigation was triggered in September 2009, when border agents found Mary Anne Catalano, the lead assistant in the doctor’s Toronto practice at the time, in possession of a duffel bag full of medical supplies and drugs as she attempted to cross the border near Buffalo.
