Biogenesis founder Tony Bosch surrenders to DEA
Exactly one year after the Biogenesis scandal rocked MLB, the founder, Tony Bosch, has been arrested for conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids.
Exactly one year ago, 13 players were suspended for their involvement with a South Florida clinic called Biogenesis, relating to the use of performance-enhancing drugs. A total of 17 players in all were nailed at some point with drug-related suspensions tied to the clinic, but it doesn't stop there, because now Tony Bosch, founder of the clinic, has surrendered to the DEA:
