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