New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez admitted to performance-enhancing drug use during a meeting with the Drug Enforcement Administration in January, according to a report from the Miami Herald.
According to the Herald, which cited a written “report of investigation,” Rodriguez told the DEA that he paid Biogenesis doctor Anthony Bosch for testosterone cream, testosterone gummies and HGH injections. According to the report, one such injection took place in the men’s room of a Miami nightclub.
“Rodriguez injected the HGH into his stomach,” the DEA report stated, according to the newspaper. “Rodriguez said Bosch told him the HGH would help with sleep, weight, hair growth, eyesight and muscle recovery.”
According to the report, Rodriguez was also trained in tricks to beat a urine test.
“Bosch advised him to only use mid-stream urine for MLB drug testing,” the DEA report stated, according to the newspaper. “Bosch told Rodriguez not to use the beginning or the end urine stream.”
