Major League Baseball is set to file a lawsuit today against Tony Bosch, the former head of Coral Gables anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, alleging he damaged the sport by providing performance-enhancing drugs to baseball players, the New York Times reports. The suit follows a Miami New Times investigation into Biogenesis that suggested Bosch's clinic had ties to stars including Alex Rodriguez and Nelson Cruz.
MLB investigators have been combing South Florida and interviewing sources connected to Biogenesis since New Times' story was published in January, but unlike law enforcement agents, they lack subpoena power to obtain records or to force people to talk.
