Report: MLB has 'tons' of witnesses for investigation into Biogenesis
by Mike Axisa cbssportsline.com

Major League Baseball has "tons" of witnesses who will help frame the basis of their investigation into the South Florida anti-aging clinic Biogenesis and performance-enhancing drugs in the region, reports Stephen Marcus of Newsday.

It's unclear if the witnesses are former Biogenesis employees or people who would have more damning information, such as those who allegedly supplied PEDs to players directly. Former Biogenesis chief Anthony Bosch agreed to cooperate with MLB's investigation recently.

Richard McLaren, an arbitrator who has assisted MLB with previous PED issues, believes the league will be able to build a strong case despite the lack of failed drug tests. The Joint Drug Agreement allows for discipline bases on "non-analytical positives."

"You want to have as much corroborative evidence as you can find," [McLaren] said. "So to the extent that there were employees, receptionists or whatever at the clinic who might have knowledge of what's going on, then you want them to testify, verify, corroborate someone else's testimony, like Bosch.

"So they would certainly be looking to obtain that type of information, and I would suspect they have some of that kind of information available to them and are prepared to call that at arbitration."

The quality of the witnesses is more important than the quantity of witnesses, of course. Multiple witnesses testified against both Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds in recent years, but it didn't lead to anything.

Alex Rodriguez, who seems to be at the center of the investigation, along with Ryan Braun, issued a statement on Thursday saying he was unhappy about being named before the investigation is complete. Bosch reportedly tried to extort money from A-Rod before agreeing to cooperate with MLB.
