Major league baseball is reportedly preparing to take action against some of the biggest names in the game accused of using performance enhancing drugs.
When former Biogenesis owner Anthony Bosch reportedly agreed to cooperate with Major League Baseball, it could be the opening of Pandora’s Box when it comes to drugs in the sport. But, Major League Baseball should also tread carefully based on another major scandal.
The hammer may soon come down against as many as 20 baseball players allegedly involved in a performance enhancing drug scandal originated at a Miami clinic.
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.
