Agent Aide Was Middle-Man in Baseball Doping Case, NY Times Says

Aug. 7 (Bloomberg) -- An aide for a sports agency was the middle-man between Major League Baseball players and an anti-aging clinic in Florida which led to the biggest doping suspensions handed out in the sport, the New York Times reported.

Juan Carlos Nunez, a New York travel agent who worked as a Spanish-speaking interpreter for ACES, a sports agency run by Sam and Seth Levinson, helped put players in touch with Anthony Bosch, the founder of the now-shuttered Biogenesis of America LLC anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Florida, the Times reported.

Major League Baseball two days ago suspended New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez without pay through the 2014 season, the longest ban in the sport’s history, and 12 other players for 50 games for their involvement with Biogenesis. The 12 other players were all current or former clients of ACES and Nunez acted without the knowledge of his bosses, the Times said.

Michael Weiner, the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, told the Times yesterday that the union’s investigation cleared the Levinsons of any wrongdoing in the Biogenesis case. ACES said in a statement it had “no involvement and no knowledge of any wrongdoing,” according to the Times.
