Alex Rodriguez is denying allegations that he received performance-enhancing drugs from Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis company, but the evidence against him is mounting. On Tuesday, the Miami New Times reported that A-Rod was one of many MLB players who ordered performance-enhancing drugs (in many cases testosterone) from the now-defunct Biogenesis company. Their report was based on conversations with former Biogenesis employees and customers, plus written records and patient files. The evidence from the Miami New Times seemed very solid. Rodriguez, through his publicist, denied the report. “The news report about a purported relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch are not true. Alex Rodriguez was not Mr. Bosch’s patient, he was never treated by him and he was treated by him and he was never advised by him. The purported documents referenced in the story — at least as they relate to Alex Rodriguez — are not legitimate.” ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” reports that Rodriguez received injections from Bosch, which meshes with the New Times’ report which said Rodriguez received personal attention from Bosch. ESPN says Rodriguez would send Bosch text messages telling him to come to his mansion to inject him with performance-enhancing drugs. These visits reportedly would occur every few weeks. They even shared a detailed anecdote about Bosch having difficult locating a vein to inject A-Rod, leaving the Yankees DH/3B angered and bloody. Rodriguez has not tested positive for PEDs since MLB began drug testing, though he did admit to using steroids from 2001-2003 after his PED usage was exposed in 2009 Sports Illustrated story. Three of the MLB players mentioned in the New Times report — Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon, and Yasmani Grandal — failed drug tests last season and received 50-game suspensions. Other proven PED users like Manny Ramirez and tennis player Wayne Odesnik have ties to the Bosches/Biogenesis. We know who we’re believing in this situation, and it isn’t the self-admitted former user. The post A-Rod reportedly received injections from Anthony Bosch appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
