Alex Rodriguez Under Investigation for PED Use; Yankees to Void Contract?

by at .

According to a report in The Miami New Times, Alex Rodriguez is among several players who received performance-enhancing drugs from Anthony Bosch, an employee at Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic in South Florida.

The story details records of Rodriguez's purchases from Bosch, dating from 2009-2012, which would run counter to A-Rod's previous claims that he only took these drugs while playing in Texas from 2001-2003.

And if Major League Baseball investigates the allegations? And disciplines the Yankees slugger?

New York may look to void the five years and $114 million remaining on his contract.

A source tells ESPN that the Yankees "are looking at about 20 different things" in terms of how to deal with their aging third baseman, including whether Rodriguez breached the deal by taking medical treatment from an outside physician without the team's authorization.

But the team will likely run into many obstacles due to the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement.

"The news report about a purported relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch are not true," said a statement released by Sitrick & Company, Rodriguez's publicist. "Alex Rodriguez was not Mr. Bosch's patient, he was never treated by him and he was never advised by him. The purported documents referenced in the story -- at least as they relate to Alex Rodriguez -- are not legitimate."
