Courtesy of ESPN.com's T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish comes the latest damning bit of reportage concerning the unfolding South Florida PED scandal.
Anthony Bosch, the clinician who's presently under MLB scrutiny, personally injected Alex Rodriguez with performance-enhancing drugs on multiple occasions, according to Quinn's and Fish's sources. They write:

But for A-Rod, the service was always personal: "Only Tony handled A-Rod," one source told "Outside the Lines."
The visits were every few weeks. One night last spring, a source said, Bosch told associates he had been kicked out of Rodriguez' home after he had trouble locating a vein and infuriated the player. The sources did not say why Bosch would have been tapping a vein, as HGH and testosterone do not require intravenous injections. But whatever he was doing, "Tony said A-Rod was pissed at him," a source said. "He said he was bleeding everywhere."
Several sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Bosch spoke openly about his relationship with the Yankee All-Star, and two sources said that documents they reviewed detailed the drug regimens and schedules Rodriguez received.
Quinn and Fish note both Bosch and a spokesperson for Rodriguez deny the latest allegations.
Suffice it to say, the story is still developing.
