A Miami-area man who allegedly worked closely with Alex Rodriguez is being investigated for possible links to performance-enhancing drugs by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Major League Baseball, the New York Daily News reports.

"The Drug Enforcement Administration and Major League Baseball are investigating a Miami-area man named Anthony Bosch -- who has worked closely with Alex Rodriguez -- for Bosch’s possible links to performance-enhancing drugs, sources have told the Daily News. The sources asked not to be identified because of the ongoing probe."

The News said that A-Rod has consulted with Bosch.

"The source said Rodriguez and Bosch consulted with at least one other expert about blood test results. Bosch, records show, has been affiliated with a number of Miami-area medical companies and clinics."

Rodriguez, 37, will miss at least the first half of this season as he recovers from hip surgery. There is a chance he could miss the entire season.

A-Rod has yet to be directly tied into the probe. If he were to be linked, he could face a suspension from baseball. Rodriguez is owed $114 million over the next five seasons.
