More Biogenesis Suspensions Likely: What Will Happen Next?

The never-ending scandal surrounding the Major League Baseball(MLB) and illegal use of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and other steroids has once again resurfaced.

Charge the mound: As recently as Tuesday morning, several less known but key players who were target of a massive federal investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration were charged with federal drug conspiracy. The most notable being Anthony Bosch, the former owner of Biogenesis, who was responsible for supplying numerous professional athletes with Performance Enhancing Drugs(PEDs). Bosch pled not guilty to the charge, and received a $100,000 bond as a result. Bosch could potentially face up to 10 years in prison, but will likely not serve that much if he is found guilty and comes to some sort of plea agreement with the U.S. Attorneys.

Also in hot water is the cousin of Alex Rodriguez, Yuri Sucart. Sucart had previously been in trouble back in 2009 after he was banned by the MLB from the Yankees clubhouse or any team activities when Rodriguez informed the MLB that Sucart was responsible for injecting Rodriguez with PEDs and other steroids. As of earlier this week, Sucart had not answered to the charges or entered a plea.

Also entering pleas of not guilty were Christopher Engroba, 25, of Miami and Carlos Acevedo, 35, also from Miami. Engroba received a bond of $50,000 while Acevedo received a bond of $100,000.

In this particular case, none of the charges that were filed by the DEA or the US Attorney’s office were aimed at any professional athletes. The main goal here was to take down the supplier, which in this case was Bosch’s organization and all individuals involved had some role in the distribution of illegal PEDs.

It is only a matter of time before this serves as a deterrent to other black market dealers of PEDs and HGH that will hopefully prevent them from such activity.

Title: Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins contributor Contact: [email protected] I don't know about our readers, but I am and have always been a die hard New England Sports fan. I have lived out of the greater New England area since 2008, so being able to follow Boston sports teams has given me the opportunity to experience a piece of home without actually being there. I completed my undergraduate studies at Hesser College in 2007 prior to moving to the Washington DC area in 2008. I later completed a Master's degree in criminal justice from American Military University, in which field I am currently employed. Despite living in this area for almost 6 years, I can't see myself as a local sports fan. As nice as the Nationals Park is, my heart will always be found at Yawkey way. I am brand new to Sportsofboston.com, and I am looking forward to being an integral part of their mission while being able to cover my favorite sports teams on a regular basis. I look forward to fielding your questions or comments regarding my articles.
