The Yankees star denied any involvement with the South Florida clinic under investigation by MLB after a report connected an associate of his to the facility.
Major League Baseball paid a former employee of a Florida anti-aging clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs for documents, The New York Times reported Thursday on its website.
A-Rod, Ryan Braun & Co. will be questioned by baseball “shortly after the season begins next week,” according to the Daily News.
That leaves no room for worry regarding MLB’s latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal — a headache with A-Rod at the center of it all.
Another PED scandal has been “quietly revisited,” and it also involves Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, according to the New York Daily News.
According to the New York Times, the league is now focusing on the University of Miami baseball team. Investigators believe that there may be a connection between the university’s baseball program and PED use, according to the newspaper.
“I have nothing to hide,” Ryan Braun said in a statement released by his representatives on Tuesday night.
Alex Rodriguez has had Anthony Bosch personally come to his Miami home to inject performance-enhancing drugs, according to a report.
The Yankees and their fans may want Alex Rodriguez to just go away. But if you think A-Rod will just up and retire, think again.
Yes, I understand how badly you want Alex Rodriguez to just go away. Unfortunately for all of us, it’s just not that simple. And it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon.
Whatever happens, the Yankees most certainly should not expect any help from A-Rod himself. He’s not walking away from anything.
Once considered a player who could shatter the career home run record, Rodriguez has transformed from All-Star to annoyance for some in the Yankees organization.
If the new allegations were true, the Yankees would face high hurdles to get out of the final five years and $114 million of Rodriguez’s record $275 million, 10-year contract.
On Tuesday, the Miami New Times blew the doors open on Anthony Bosch and his anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis. There was A-Rod’s name, among others, reportedly listed in “an extraordinary batch of records.”
