An attorney for former American League MVP Jose Canseco entered an innocent plea for him Friday in a Halloween night scuffle at a Miami Beach nightclub.

Circuit Judge Stanford Blake set trial Feb. 19 on two felony counts of aggravated battery, but it is uncertain whether both sides would be ready at that time.

Police said Canseco, a free agent after playing last season with the Chicago White Sox, grabbed a club patron by the neck, punched him and broke his nose. A second man needed 20 stitches in his lip. Both were California tourists.

Canseco was at the club with his twin brother and three women. He said one of the other men violently groped one of the women, so he pushed him. Canseco denied hitting the man.

Is it too late for arbitration on this?
