Embattled New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez asked a federal judge on Monday to throw out an arbitrator's decision suspending him for the 2014 baseball season for doping, escalating a battle with Major League Baseball that shows no signs of abating.

In the petition, filed by Rodriguez's attorneys at the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, they said arbitrator Fredric Horowitz exhibited "blatant partiality" toward MLB.

Rodriguez also said in his petition that the league's initial 211-game ban was impermissibly long under the terms of baseball's labor agreement and he accused MLB officials of leaking details about the case to the media. (Associated Press)
