Report: MLB secures cooperation agreement with Biogenesis clinic owner
Major League Baseball secured a cooperative agreement with Anthony Bosch, the founder of the South Florida clinic at the center of an ongoing performance-enhance drug scandal, reports ESPN.com.
Bosch is expected to tell what he knows about the possible distribution of PED’s to athletes. Bosch previously denied any knowledge of suspected PED distribution at the now-closed Biogenesis clinic.
The attorney for Carlos Acevedo, was named with Bosch and three others in a civil suit brought by MLB in March, told ESPN he has filed a motion to have his client dismissed from the suit. Acevedo’s attorney Martin Beguiristain expects his motion to be heard Wednesday in a Miami-Dade County circuit court.
MLB is seeking suspensions, including 100-game bans for Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun, for numerous MLB players for having connections with Bosch and for lying about those connections.

“They haven’t sat down with me, much less got anywhere near my client, other than sending investigators to his house to bang on the door,” Beguiristain said. “And threatening him and intimidating him. It is like they think they are the federal government. No, they went about this all wrong in regards to my client.”
