Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez -- having skipped the MLB Home Run Derby the night before -- reportedly showered, dressed and left 11 innings early Tuesday after going 0-2 and stranding a runner with a strikeout in the American League's 4-3 victory in the All Star game, then rendezvoused with two of Madonna's chums at a trendy, upscale Manhattan nightspot.
Rodriguez , 32, -- who was unaccompanied by an escort as he entered the 40-40 Club in New York's Flatiron District for the second night in a row -- disappeared into a private VIP party room, where he was seen huddling with two of Madonna's closest gal friends, Fox 5 television reported.
Madonna was nowhere in sight.
Meanwhile, attorneys for Rodriguez's estranged wife Cynthia Rodriguez, 34, have recently filed a motion in Dade County Court in Miami as part of her divorce action. The filing seeks to discover whether her husband has hired detectives to spy on her or eavesdrop on her telephone conversations, according to a wire report carried in The Miami Herald. The motion is considered routine in such cases.
Citing her husband for alleged infidelity, she seeks to take sole possession of their $12 million waterfront mansion in Coral Gables, Fla., win an alimony award and financial support for their two young children.
Madonna, 49, has denied a romantic interest in Alex Rodriguez.
