MLB Reportedly Suspending A-Rod and Braun Over Biogenesis Scandal

Jul 11 2013, 1:24am CDT | by

Several reports say Major League Baseball is reportedly preparing to mete out lengthy suspensions to several players, including Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees and Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, for their alleged involvement in the Biogenesis performance-enhanding drug scandal.

The timetable for the suspension may begin as early as next week, reports UPI's Gabrielle Levy. Braun, the 2011 National League MVP, met with league officials but refused to answer questions about his involvement with Biogenesis, a Miami-based clinic which allegedly sold illegal performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) to several major leaguers. 

Rodriguez is scheduled to meet with MLB officials on Friday and is expected to deny any ties to the drug scandal, per Levy. She cites a source who says MLB has already met with 10 other players who were suspected to have bought banned substances from Anthony Bosch and Biogenesis.

A-Rod, on his part, said he was unaware of any meeting with MLB. 

"Not that I know of, and if I knew, I couldn't share with you guys. We've been fully instructed to not comment on that case."

Rodriguez, Braun and as many as 18 other players could be suspended for 100 games, the punishment for a second offense. Other prominent names who are suspected of being involved include New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera and Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon. 

According to ESPN, Bosch's lawyers have met several times with league officials over the past month to show documents which solidify the players' connection to Biogenesis named in company documents.
