According to multiple reports, the Drug Enforcement Administration and Major League Baseball are investigating south Florida clinics for possible links to performance-enhancing drugs and its players.
Both The New York Daily News and ESPN named Anthony Bosch as a central figure in the investigation.
Bosch reportedlyhas worked with closely with many Latin ballplayers in south Florida, most notably Alex Rodriguez. A source familiar with the Miami-area anti-aging centers told The Daily News that Bosch has advised Rodriguez on nutrition, dietarysupplementsand training and that the two consulted with at least one other expert about blood-test results.
According to the ESPN report, MLB security officials have been investigating the clinics believed to be linked to the sale of human growth hormone (HGH)and testosterone to players since last summer.
Bosch's father, physician Pedro Publio Bosch, is also named in the reports MLB officials have turned over to federal investigators.
