Alex Rodriguez is among those facing suspension for allegedly using performance enhancing drugs.
According to ESPN, the founder of Biogenesis of America, an anti-aging clinic in Miami, Fla., has agreed to cooperate with Major League Baseball in its ongoing doping scandal.
Founder Tony Bosch is expected to give information regarding services he provided up to 20 players. It is believed he will confirm he gave players like A-Rod and Ryan Braun performance enhancing drugs.
News of the alleged doping came to light after Biongenesis went under in 2012. Records from the clinic were released to the public and names of nearly two dozens players were reportedly found about the records.
Should the allegations prove true, A-Rod and the other players would be part of the largest doping scandal in American sports history.

- Alex Rodriguez - Yankees
- Ryan Braun - Brewers
- Melky Cabrera - Blue Jays
- Everth Cabrera - Padres

On Wednesday, union executive director Michael Weiner released a statement saying, “The Players Association has every interest in both defending the rights of players and in defending the integrity of our joint program. We trust that the Commissioner’s Office shares these interests.”
