Major League Baseball’s Highest Paid Athlete Has a Serious Headache … and He’s Not Going to Get It Cured at a Certain Florida Anti-Aging Center!
A brutal blow to Alex Rodriguez’s reputation has been published by THE NEW YORK TIMES, as the unofficial newspaper of record has reported that Major League Baseball investigators have uncovered what they believe is evidence that a representative of A-Rod’s purchased medical records from a person connected to a South Florida anti-aging clinic that is suspected of providing performance-enhancing drugs to a number of major leaguers, according to two people briefed on the matter.
The newspaper reported yesterday that Major League Baseball had purchased documents from a former employee at the clinic, which operated under the name Biogenesis of America and is now closed, in an effort to uncover evidence that would link the clinic to the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. The article also stated that one major league player had also purchased clinic documents from a former clinic employee so that they could be destroyed. That player was not identified until Friday, when the two people said it was A-Rod, the 37-year-old Yankees third baseman currently rehabilitating from off-season hip surgery.
It should be noted that earlier today, a spokesman for A-Rod flatly denied the accusation.
In January, a weekly South Florida newspaper, Miami New Times, reported that it had obtained medical records from the clinic that tied six MLB players to the use of banned substances like human growth hormone. More records then emerged that tied other players, including Ryan Braun, to the clinic. In turn, many of the named players, including A-Rod and Braun, denied obtaining any banned substances from the clinic.
A-Rod is halfway through a 10-year, $275 million contract, the largest amount ever paid an athlete in American sports, but is still owed $114 million through the end of 2017. He missed all of spring training and is unlikely to return to action until the second half of the season, assuming his rehabilitation proceeds as planned. But his alleged link to the anti-aging clinic has created other uncertainties about his status for 2013. If MLB ultimately concluded that A-Rod, despite his denials, had connections to the clinic that involved the use of performance-enhancing drugs, it could attempt to suspend him for portions of this season.
