Major League Baseball got what it wanted from Biogenesis of America and has now withdrawn a lawsuit against the former Coral Gables-based anti-aging clinic.
State authorities said they have launched a criminal investigation into the now-closed Biogenesis clinic at the center of Major League Baseball’s latest performance-enhancing drug scandal.
The controversy surrounding New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez took another bizarre turn over the weekend when ESPN.com reported that A-Rod paid for Tony Bosch’s attorney and later transferred additional money that Bosch’s attorney refused.
The scandal that could cost Alex Rodriguez and a dozen other Major League Baseball players millions of dollars only came to light because of a South Florida business dispute over a $4,000 investment.
As New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez awaits his punishment for his role in the Biogenesis/performance enhancing drug scandal, problems could be mounting for the former head of Biogenesis, Anthony Bosch.
A Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge denied a motion to throw out Major League Baseball’s civil lawsuit against Biogenesis.
More client names involved in the Biogenesis clinic that allegedly provided performance-enhancing drugs to athletes may not be known for some time.
A former associate of Biogenesis head Tony Bosch says he turned down a $125,000 offer from Major League Baseball for documents said to implicate players in the use of 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.
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.
