MLB seeking suspensions of Braun, up to 20 others

Miami-area clinc director agrees to cooperate

MIAMI - Major League Baseball has new ammunition to possibly suspend 20 players, including the Brewers' Ryan Braun,  connected to a Miami-area clinic that supplied performance enhancing drugs.

Tony Bosch, the founder of Biogenesis of America, reached an agreement this week to cooperate with MLB's investigation, ESPN reports.

The report says Bosch will begin meeting with MLB officials within the next week and his information could lead to suspensions as soon as two weeks for players like Braun, Alex Rodriguez and Nelson Cruz.

Braun's name appears on at least two documents from the Biogenesis clinic. One lists  him as owing $20,000 to $30,000 and another that says he owed $1500 for what sources said were performance enhancing drugs.

Braun issued an earlier statement saying the payments were for consulting Bosch on Braun's successful appeal of his positive drug test in 2012.
