MIAMI (AP) - Major League Baseball officials have asked the Miami News Times for records the alternative newspaper obtained for a story on alleged use of banned substances by several players.
Miami New Times editor Chuck Strouse said Tuesday the paper had not yet decided how to respond. Strouse described the MLB move as a request and noted that the league does not have legal subpoena power.
The newspaper reported last week that New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and other players had obtained human growth hormone and other banned substances from a now-closed Coral Gables clinic operated by Anthony Bosch. The story was based on clinic records the New Times said it obtained.
Rodriguez and other players denied the allegations, as did an attorney for Bosch.
