(CNN) – According to court paperwork filed on Thursday, suspended New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has dropped a medical malpractice lawsuit against the Yankees team doctor and New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Rodriguez claimed Yankee team Dr. Christopher Ahmad misdiagnosed his hip injury in 2012, clearing him to play when a second doctor recommended surgery.

According to the filing, the action is "discontinued with prejudice" against the defendants.

A-Rod is serving a season-long suspension over accusations he took performance enhancing drugs.
