Baseball: Alex Rodriguez denies doping report; Major League Baseball investigates
NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez has denied a newspaper report on Tuesday that accused the Major League Baseball (MLB) star of buying human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances from a clinic in the Miami area.
The Miami New Times, an alternative weekly, reported that it obtained records detailing purchases by Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon, Nelson Cruz and Yasmani Grandal from a clinic called Biogenesis, run by Anthony Bosch.
The paper also posted copies of what it said were Bosch's handwritten records, obtained through a former Biogenesis employee.
Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-03. Cabrera, Colon and Grandal were suspended for 50 games each last year by MLB following tests for elevated testosterone.
