TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez will not report to spring training with the Yankees' position players and will work on his rehabilitation from hip surgery in New York.

The third baseman is expected to be sidelined until at least the All-Star break following the Jan. 16 operation.

Says manager Joe Girardi: "There's not a lot that he can do here."

The Miami New Times last month published records that allege Rodriguez purchased performance-enhancing substances in recent years from Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed clinic in Coral Cables, near Rodriguez's offseason home.

Rodriguez has denied the allegations. Major League Baseball is investigating the matter.

"Him being in New York has nothing to do with trying to get rid of a distraction," Girardi said Tuesday. "It's the best place him for him to be."
