Alex Rodriguez's publicist says the Yankees' third baseman is looking forward to cooperating with Major League Baseball in its investigation of his alleged involvement in illegal poker games.

The All-Star slugger sidestepped the issue, however, at the team's minor league training facility in Florida on Thursday, saying he had no comment following his first on-field activities since having right knee surgery July 14th.

Star Magazine reported last month that several people saw A-Rod playing in games hosted at Hollywood hotels and residences.

But Richard Rubenstein, Rodriguez's publicist, said in a statement Thursday morning that the story contains "numerous factual inaccuracies."

The 36-year-old Rodriguez took the field for about 33 minutes, doing light running, playing catch, taking grounders and hitting in the batting cage off a tee and against a soft toss.
