TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Yankees captain Derek Jeter plans to wait until teammate Alex Rodriguez addresses his latest off-the-field controversy before commenting on the matter.

The Miami New Times reported last week that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, near Rodriguez's offseason home.

The new public relations firm for the three-time AL MVP issued a statement denying the allegations.

''I don't comment on anyone until they speak first,'' Jeter said Monday. ''Let him address his situation before I comment on it. Let him speak first and then we'll talk about that.'' comments
