Yankees star Alex Rodriguez could be suspended for life after his recent admission that he has taken performance-enhancing drugs in the past. Several people close to Rodriguez say that prior to MLB’s investigation into their star third baseman, they had not known about Rodriguez’s alleged use of human growth hormone (HGH).
MLB commissioner Bud Selig is expected to suspend A-Rod in the coming days for allegedly taking PEDs in 2003 and ’04 when he was a member of the Texas Rangers. The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that MLB is trying to determine if Rodriguez used HGH during this time period. If it is determined that he did fail the HGH test, then MLB Commissioner Bud Selig can ban him from baseball for life.
A-Rod has reportedly taken the same HGH, delivered in kits to his house by Tony Bosch of Biogenesis, a PED clinic that he owned in Florida. The Daily News also reports Rodriguez received hundreds of injections from Bosch and other doctors when he was with the Yankees. This is in violation of MLB rules which state a player can’t receive any drugs from someone who isn’t a doctor or take anything through an intravenous injection unless it’s in the team physician’s office and logged in the treatment records kept by all teams. A-Rod apparently did not play during this time period but missed several games due to injuries later found to have been played while using performance enhancers according to three people familiar with the events.
Rodriguez was a target of MLB’s investigation into Biogenesis, but the league took a pass on going after him in January because they did not have enough evidence to suspend him at that time. Rodriguez has reportedly told friends he did take banned substances while with the Texas Rangers from 2001-03 and since he did fail an MLB test for PEDs in 2013 it is believed his suspension will cover all of this period. The three people familiar with the events say A-Rod publicly stated then that everything was just vitamins and supplements which appears to be false. In his defense, Rodriguez says he had been taking ‘bute’ which is similar to aspirin or ibuprofen during that time which shows up in drug tests as negative for PEDs.
