While New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez awaits his fate from an arbitrator, the case surrounding the documents that implicated A-Rod in the usage of performance-enhancing drugs at the Coral Gables-based Biogenesis clinic took another turn Thursday.
Thursday morning, there was an emergency hearing requesting Porter Fischer appear in court in the case against Alex Rodriguez and other Major League Baseball players.
Alex Rodriguez entered baseball in July 1994 and was immediately pegged as a future Hall of Famer and one of the greatest to ever play. Instead, the player who was considered a shoo-in for Cooperstown will be suspended through the rest of the 2013 season and all of the 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal, according to CBSNews.com.
Cesar Carillo has been released from the Detroit Tigers.

Major League Baseball is preparing to suspend multiple players including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun for their alleged usage of performance enhancing drugs from the Coral Gables-based Biogenesis anti-aging clinic, according to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”

The real-life murder, torture and kidnapping case from South Florida that’s behind the coming movie “Pain & Gain” indeed reads like a script — just not a funny one.
Major League Baseball is planning to file a lawsuit Friday against multiple people linked to the Biogenesis clinic that has been connected to performance enhancing drug use by athletes by multiple published reports.
