It’s official that Alex Rodriguez, third baseman for the New York Yankees, took steroids while playing from 2010-2012.
In an immunity deal with the Drug Enforcement Association, Rodriguez came clean about his stint with steroids. In a 15-page synopsis of a private meeting that took place between Rodriguez and federal agents, Rodriguez confessed to taking banned substances during his time with the Yankees between 2010 and 2012.
The MLB banned Rodriguez the entire 2014 MLB season for not providing accurate and honest enough information.
With the help of Rodriguez’s cousin, Yuir Sucart, the slugger was able to get the substances through a fake doctor and owner of a Biogenesis lab in Coral Gables, Florida, Anthony Bosch. Rodriguez was reportedly paying $12,000 a month for his services.
“Rodriguez injected the HGH into his stomach,” the DEA reported. “Rodriguez said Bosch told him the HGH would help with sleep, weight, hair growth, eyesight and muscle recovery.”
At 39-years-old and three years left on his contract, 2015 will make for an interesting return for Rodriguez. He will be coming off two hip repair surgeries and a now ‘officially’ tarnished career.
