Summary of 4 articles · Updated Feb 19, 2014
The lawsuit had accused Biogenesis and Bosch of conspiring with players to violate their contracts by providing them with banned performance-enhancing substances. A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals. Although the lawsuit sought unspecified money damages, it also provided MLB a way to subpoena clinic records. Major League Baseball has withdrawn its lawsuit against a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic at the center of the scandal involving use of banned substances by players, including New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. ■ The Atlanta Braves, who recently signed first baseman Freddie Freeman, right fielder Jason Heyward, starter Julio Teheran and closer Craig Kimbrel to contract extensions, extended the contracts of Manager Fredi Gonzalez and General Manager Frank Wren on Wednesday.
