Multiple reports say baseball investigators believe Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez paid to retrieve records from a Florida clinic to keep them out of the hands of the investigators.
There has been speculation that A-Rod acquired performance-enhancing drugs from the clinic, an allegation Rodriguez's spokesman has denied.
Reports say an employee of the clinic was paid thousands of dollars to give back documents that could incriminate Rodriguez.
The reports say that even though the information is considered credible, there is no hard proof connecting Rodriguez with the payments.
Rodriguez could face a suspension and even criminal charges if witnesses do come forward.
