MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Bud Selig maintains Major League Baseball had no idea Alex Rodriguez received a medical exemption from the sport’s drug administrator to use a testosterone-boosting substance in 2007. According to the book “Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era,” Rodriguez was granted an exemption by Bryan W. Smith, then the independent administrator of baseball’s drug program. The New York Yankees third baseman is serving a season-long ban this year after an MLB drug investigation.
