NEW YORK —

The Daily News is reporting that Alex Rodriguez sought advice on legal nutritional supplements from the founder of the company at the center of the largest federal criminal investigation into sports doping.

Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative Victor Conte tells the New York newspaper that Rodriguez did not ask him for illegal drugs and they mostly talked about legal products. The 38-year-old slugger and Conte spoke at a meeting in May 2012.

A-Rod recently rejoined the Yankees after spending the first four months of the season finishing rehab from January hip surgery. He has been playing while he appeals the 211-game doping suspension he received last week.

BALCO was the clinic investigated by federal agents that ultimately led to Barry Bonds' conviction on obstruction of justice charges.
