Tied to performance-enhancing drugs for the second time in his career, Alex Rodriguez on Tuesday denied he was a client of the Miami-area anti-aging clinic that reportedly supplied numerous athletes with HGH and synthetic testosterone.[Related: Alex Rodriguez the biggest name in new PED report]
On Tuesday, the New Times reported Rodriguez apparently received PEDs through Biogenesis, a clinic run by Anthony Bosch.
Through a Los Angeles-based public relations firm, Rodriguez released the following statement: "The news report about a purported relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch are not true. 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."
To a follow-up question as to whether this meant Rodriguez denied taking PEDs in that time, a spokesperson responded, "Yes, Alex denies taking PEDs during the time frame described in the story."
