A lawyer for a former University of Miami pitching coach is seeking a wide range of Major League Baseball records for the coach's upcoming trial on illegal performance-enhancing drug distribution charges. That includes details of an immunity deal given to New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.

Frank Quintero Jr. wants a federal judge to order MLB and the Miami U.S. attorney's office to turn over the records for the defense of the ex-coach, Lazaro "Laser" Collazo, in the case centered on the now-closed Biogenesis of America clinic.

Quintero says he needs the documents to defend Collazo in his February trial. He says they allegedly show how MLB has influenced the prosecution through such things as paying witnesses, buying stolen documents and influencing witness testimony.

MLB denies the allegations.
