Major League Baseball Preparing To Suspend 20 Players

Latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal

|

Major League Baseball is reportedly preparing to suspend about 20 players with connections to the Miami-area anti-aging clinic at the center of a performance-enhancing drug investigation, including former MVP's Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun.

Anthony Bosch, the founder of the Biogenesis of America clinic, has agreed to talk to MLB officials about players linked to performance-enhancing drugs, sources told ESPN and The Associated Press Tuesday.

One source familiar with the case told ESPN that the commissioner's office may seek 100-game suspensions for Rodriguez, Braun, and other players, which is the penalty for a second doping offense. The players' connection to Bosch would constitute one offense and prior statements to MLB officials denying the or the use of PEDs would constitute another, the network's source said.

  1. Wait, denying use counts as an offense? WTF?

    1. x2.

  2. Anthony Bosch, the founder of the Biogenesis of America clinic, has agreed to talk to MLB officials about players linked to performance-enhancing drugs, sources told ESPN and The Associated Press Tuesday.

    MLB has sued Biogenesis of America and its operators, accusing them of scheming to provide banned PEDs to players in violation of their contracts.

    I haven’t found any articles that indicating if Bosch is getting something, if anything, in return for this sudden cooperativeness. Seems like a good question to be asking.
