(AP) Alex Rodriguez's lawyers were blocked from holding a news conference with a person they described as a "major league baseball whistleblower" when the commissioner's office obtained an order from the arbitrator hearing the case.


More than an hour after the scheduled start of the news conference Monday, one of Rodriguez's lawyers read the substance of the order from arbitrator Fredric Horowitz to the assembled media.


The lawyers would not say whether the "whistleblower" worked for Major League Baseball, one of its teams or some other affiliate. They also said the "whistleblower" had facts not directly related to the substance of the case.


Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games in August following baseball's investigation of the now-closed Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. The players' union filed a grievance to overturn the penalty.
