Major League Baseball wes granted subpoenas last month as part of its investigation to determine whether at least 20 players possibly obtained performance-enhancing drugs from a south Florida clinic.
MLB lawyers issued the subpoenas, which were obtained from the Circuit Court for Miami-Dade County on May 23, to Federal Express, AT&T Mobility and T-Mobile USA for access to shipping and phone records in its probe of Biogenesis of America, the anti-aging clinic headed by Anthony Bosch that is suspected of supplying the PEDs.
FedEx was asked for shipping records from Biogenesis and the phone companies for call history of Juan Carlos Nunez, an associate of Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera, and Porter Fischer, who was tied to the clinic, according to a report by the Associated Press.
ESPN's 'Outside the Lines' reported this week that Bosch was ready to cooperate with investigators in the case and that as many as 20 players, including New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, could be suspended for up to 100 games. The players have denied any wrongdoing.
