NEW YORK - Baseball's union says management is interviewing players linked to a Miami anti-aging clinic that allegedly sold performance-enhancing drugs and has become the focus of an Major League Baseball investigation.
Clinic founder Anthony Bosch has agreed to talk with MLB, according to numerous reports, and union head Michael Weiner says the commissioner's office has assured the union that "no decisions regarding discipline have been made or will be made until those interviews are completed."
"It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations," Weiner said in a statement Wednesday.
Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera are among the players whose names have been tied to the now-closed clinic, called Biogenesis of America.
The information that Anthony Bosch provides MLB on any players who came to the now-closed Biogenesis of America clinic could lead to suspensions.
ESPN’s Outside the Lines reported Tuesday that the MLB could seek 100-game suspensions for as many as 20 players. The report indicated that MLB is ready to move quickly to suspend players, possibly as soon as two weeks from now.
The agreement between Bosch and MLB was first reported by ESPN.
