TORONTO -- Canadian prosecutors handling the case of a sports doctor at the center of a pair of drug investigations say they will turn over their evidence to his lawyer next month.

Kandia Aird of the prosecutor's office told a representative of Dr. Anthony Galea's lawyer at a brief hearing on Thursday that authorities will provide full disclosure to the defense on April 22.

Galea is the physician being investigated in Canada and the U.S. after his assistant was caught bringing human growth hormone and other substances over the Ontario-New York border last fall. Galea faces four charges in Canada.

Alex Rodriguez is scheduled to talk Friday to U.S. investigators about his treatment from Galea last year, which the doctor told The Associated Press consisted of prescribing anti-inflammatories after the Yankees slugger underwent hip surgery.
