New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez received personal service at his home in Florida for injections of performance-enhancing injections from a clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball, ESPN reported Friday. Anthony Bosch, who operated the Biogenesis of America clinic in Coral Gables, attended to Rodriguez's needs on numerous visits and personally administered injections. On one occasion, Rodriguez became upset when Bosch couldn't find a vein and Rodriguez started bleeding profusely, according to the Outside the Lines report, Sources told ESPN that documents outlining drug regiments and schedules were reviewed. MLB is investigating the clinic as the focal point of a widespread doping operation in the area. A Rodriguez spokesperson rejected the report Friday, saying "the allegations are not true," according to ESPN. Rodriguez also has denied accusations in the past that he was treated by Bosch or received PEDs from him. Rodriguez was listed in a Miami New Times on Monday as one of many athletes linked to Biogenesis. Other major-league players on the list included Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon, Nelson Cruz and Yasmani Grandal. Cabrera, Colon and Grandal were suspended 50 games last season after testing positive for testosterone. Bosch called the information "all wrong" when reached by ESPN. However, the Biogenesis office has closed. Major League Baseball has turned over its findings to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, but sources told ESPN that they don't believe the agency, which has declined comment, has launched its own investigation.
