PR firm owner's testimony blocked in A-Rod case

Judge Edgardo Ramos in New York City ruled Friday that Michael Sitrick will not have to comply with a September subpoena while he appeals an order last month that he do so. Sitrick is the head of the public relations firm Sitrick & Co. The company had worked on Rodriguez's behalf this year.
The ruling makes it less likely Major League Baseball can use evidence from Sitrick to argue for enforcement of its 211-game suspension of Rodriguez for alleged violations of baseball's drug agreement and labor contract. Rodriguez is challenging the suspension.
