Major league ballplayers may be involved in doping

Jan 29 2013, 1:52pm CST | by

More allegations of doping by major league baseball players have surfaced involving Bosch Biogenesis, in Florida. Alex Rodriguez, who is mentioned in documents, denies allegations of using performance-enhancing-drugs.

MIAMI, Fla. – A Florida man, according to the Miami New Times, has been linked to supplying performance enhancing drugs to a number of major league ballplayers.

A self-proclaimed biochemist, Anthony Bosch, who reportedly is known in Latin-American baseball circles, distributed synthetic testosterone and human growth hormones to a number of players – among them Texas Rangers outfielder, Nelson Cruz.

Allegedly, outfielder Melky Cabera, pitcher Batolo Colon and catcher Yasmani Grandal were clients of Bosch. They were previously suspended from league play.

A former employee of Bosch Biogenesis clinic supplied the New Times with records alleging that Alex Rodriguez used HGH, testosterone cream and insulin-like growth factor, all of which are banned by MLB policy. Rodriquez denies the allegations.

As a result of various doping allegations, the MLB and the player's association have strengthened its performance-enhancing-drugs policies. The new measures include random blood testing for HGH and a more definitive test for synthetic forms of testosterone.

East Notes: A-Rod, Rays, Nationals, Braves
