Alex Rodriguez says he has still not met with federal agents investigating a Canadian doctor in a drug case.

Rodriguez was expected to meet with officials Friday in Buffalo, N.Y., about his treatment from Dr. Anthony Galea last year after having hip surgery. Galea faces four charges in Canada related to human growth hormone and another controversial drug, called Actovegin. The physician says he just prescribed anti-inflammatories for the slugger.

But the Yankees third basemen said after batting practice at spring training there was no meeting and he and his lawyers are still working with federal authorities on scheduling. Rodriguez said he hopes to cooperate before opening day on April 4.

He also says he will meet with Major League Baseball soon.
