A letter to a New York judge said Major League Baseball wants an early dismissal of a lawsuit Alex Rodriguez filed against the league and commissioner Bud Selig.

Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan agreed Monday that both sides could file their motions by Nov. 8 in federal court.

The lawsuit claims MLB went on a “witch hunt” to remove Rodriguez from baseball.

• Former major league catcher Brad Ausmus interviewed for the Tigers' manager's job. Dodgers third-base coach Tim Wallach, Padres bench coach Rick Renteria and Tigers hitting coach — and former Pirates manager — Lloyd McClendon also interviewed for the job.
