NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball paid a former employee of a Florida anti-aging clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs for documents, The New York Times reported Thursday on its website.

The newspaper reported that two unidentified people briefed on the matter said at least one player linked to now-closed Biogenesis of America purchased documents from a former clinic employee in order to destroy them, and that other players made efforts to buy potentially incriminating documents.

In January, the Miami New Times, an alternative weekly newspaper, reported that New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was among the big leaguers listed in Biogenesis of America's records.

The players have denied they obtained banned drugs from the clinic.
