A spokesman for Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez on Friday denied more allegations of his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
According to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines," Anthony Bosch — who ran a recently-shuttered South Florida anti-aging clinic that currently is under investigation by federal authorities and Major League Baseball — personally injected A-Rod with PEDs at his Miami home.
“The allegations are not true," a Rodriguez spokesman said early Friday afternoon.
Rodriguez was among numerous athletes named in a Miami New Times story last Tuesday that alleged that the clinic run by Bosch, called Biogenesis, essentially served as a distribution center for PEDs. The story, based on documents turned over to the paper by a former Biogenesis employee, alleged that Rodriguez procured and used PEDs from the clinic from 2009 into last season.
In the wake of Friday’s report, MLB remained focused on its own investigation of Biogenesis, which got under way long before the New Times article was published. Asked Friday about the latest developments involving Rodriguez, a spokesman said only that an investigation is ongoing.
