However, Rodriguez's spokesman has denied the report, saying the baseball player, who had confessed to using PEDs in 2009, was never a patient of Anthony Bosch, who used to run the now-closed Biogenesis Clinic, as claimed in the report, the New York Post reports.

The spokesman added that the documents linking the name of Rodriguez to Bosch in the report are not legitimate.

Responding to the allegation, the Major League Baseball (MLB) has released a statement saying it is conducting an investigation and is gathering and reviewing information.

The statement added that the MLB has the best and most stringent drug testing policy in professional sports and that it is committed to seeking the appropriate outcomes for all those who use, purchase and are involved in the distribution of banned substances, which have no place in baseball.

According to a statement released by Rodriguez's team, the New York Yankees, they will not act upon the information until it has been verified by the MLB.

According to the report, Rodriguez paid 3,500 dollars in 2009 for a PED known as 1.5/1.5 HGH, through his cousin, Yuri Sucart, who reportedly used to get illegal drugs for Rodriguez.

Other baseball players identified in the report are former Yankees Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon, Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez and Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz.

Both human growth hormone and testosterone cream are banned by baseball.
