(Photo: Splash Photo Agency) Yankees slugger and confessed steroid-user Alex Rodriguez has hired attorney Jay Reisinger, a lawyer who has also worked with baseball stars Sammy Sosa and Andy Pettitte.

The Associated Press reports that Reisinger met A-Rod in Tampa, Florida, on Saturday at the team's spring training camp.

Reisinger is the second lawyer A-Rod has hired in the wake of the "Sport Illustrated" report that he tested positive for steroids in 2003. He has also retained James E. Sharp, who worked with representing Sosa in his testimony before a Congressional investigation into baseball and steroid use.

A-Rod's moves come despite the fact that there are no legal charges pending.
