An anti-aging clinic in Miami listed the names of prominent baseball players — including Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and Gio Gonzalez — and detail performance-enhancing drugs administered to them and others, according to a report Tuesday by the Miami New Times.
The names were on records Miami New Times said were given to it by an employee who worked at Biogenesis of America before it closed last month. Miami New Times reported that the records show the firm sold performance-enhancing drugs, including human growth hormone, testosterone and anabolic steroids.
Anthony Bosch, the 49-year-old head of the clinic, was connected to Manny Ramirez when the former MLB star was suspended for 50 games for violating baseball’s drug policy in 2009. Bosch has never been charged by local or federal officials.
Miami New Times said it conducted a three-month investigation before releasing its 5,400-word story online on Tuesday.
