NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has found himself ensnared in another doping investigation, and many Yankee fans wonder if this could mean the end of his career in New York.
As CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported, the New York Daily News reported Saturday that federal and state authorities were investigating Anthony Bosch, an alleged adviser the Yankees third baseman, for possible illegal distribution of HGH and testosterone to professional athletes in Florida.
On Tuesday, the Miami New Times blew the doors open on Bosch and his Miami anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis.
There was A-Rod’s name, among others, reportedly listed in “an extraordinary batch of records” given to the publication by a former Biogenesis employee before the clinic closed its doors.
“This book has receipts from 2009 up until last April, it appears that he’s back on what he’s taken before, if this document is legitimate,” said Bill Price of the New York Daily News.
“Alex Rodriguez,” “Alex Rod,” or the star’s alleged nickname at Biogenesis, “Cacique,” appeared 16 times in what are believed to be Bosch’s personal notebooks, the New Times reported.
Bosch’s 2009 records reportedly contained a listing for Rodriguez and a $3,500 order for “1.5/1.5 HGH (sports perf.) creams test., glut., MIC, supplement, sports perf. Diet.”
