The Miami New Times reported in a story Tuesday it had obtained files through an employee at a clinic in south Florida that show Rodriguez bought banned substances there.

The alternative weekly also named several other players as clients of the Biogenesis clinic run by Anthony Bosch. The facility recently shut down.

Rodriguez says in a statement Tuesday that the ``report about a purported relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch (is) not true.''

It says Rodriguez was not Bosch's patient and the documents cited by the newspaper are ``not legitimate'' in Rodriguez's case.

Major League Baseball says it has been investigating possible doping issues in south Florida.
