Report: MLB Looking To Suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and Melky Cabrera

As per TSN.ca:

Major League Baseball will reportedly seek to suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and about 20 players connected to the Biogenesis Clinic in Miami.

According to an ESPN report, Biogenesis founder Tony Bosch has agreed to cooperate with MLB officials and will provide an affidavit that he provided drugs to players.

The Miami New Times reported in January that it had obtained records detailing purchases by Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon, Nelson Cruz and Yasmani Grandal and more from Biogenesis.

Quinn believes MLB will seek suspensions for both the players’ connection to the clinic and, in some cases, lying about use of performance enhancing drugs.

The resulting suspensions could mean bans of 100 games for both Rodriguez and Braun amongst others. A 100-game ban is the standard MLB penalty for a second offence after an initial 50-game substance-abuse ban.

Bosch is expected to begin naming names within a week, according to Quinn. Because some players connected to Biogenesis were identified only by code names in the paperwork obtained by the Miami New Times, Bosch’s information could lead to more players being implicated beyond the initial 20 or so.

More details to follow.
