Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Major League Baseball is preparing to suspend as many as 20 players, including New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun for their alleged connection to a South Florida performance-enhancing clinic, this according to ESPN.

According to the report, Anthony Bosch, the founder of the now-closed Biogenesis clinic has reached an agreement this week to cooperate with baseball’s investigation.

The commissioner office might seek 100-game suspension for a number of players including Rodriguez and Braun because their connection to Bosch constitutes one offense, and denying a relationship to Major League Baseball constitutes another.
