Yankees | More on Alex Rodriguez

Updating a previous story, New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez reportedly bought documents generated by Biogenesis as Major League Baseball intensified their investigation into the Miami-based anti-aging clinic that was allegedly selling performance-enhancing substances to players, according to multiple baseball sources. The documents were available through intermediaries working on behalf of the wellness company whose owners are believed to have invested with Anthony Bosch and are now trying to recoup money as Bosch faces a lawsuit. The middleman approached players linked to Biogenesis, such as Rodriguez, and invited them to bid on documents that came from the clinic and contained detailed information about the purchases of PEDs by players and possibly their signatures.

Rodriguez apparently took up the offer and sent his own intermediaries to retrieve the documents. Rumors are that Rodriguez now has a list of names and documents that he has either leaked to the media to deflect attention from himself or destroyed them before they could be seen. "They showed baseball what they had," said one source, who understood that there was a box full of documents. "I don't think there's much left down there now. Depending what's in the documents, this could be a significant building block in baseball's case against these players?" A spokesman for Rodriguez is denying that Rodriguez purchased records in an attempt to avoid discipline.
