Major League Baseball is set to end its legal pursuit of the Florida-based clinic Biogenesis, according to CBS Sports.
The report follows news that New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has accepted his suspension for the entire 2014 season.
Both A-Rod and the anti-ageing clinic Biogenesis were key players in the PED scandal of last year that linked a number of high profile athletes to performance enhancing drugs.
The New York Daily News reported that lawyers from the MLB are likely to withdraw the lawsuit filed March 2013 against Anthony Bosch and five other defendants in the coming days.
If the MLB do pull out of the lawsuit it gives credit to the theory that the suit was only filed in an attempt to gain further information on Rodriguez.
The hope was that Bosch would choose to cooperate with the MLB over Rodriguez because of the lawsuit hanging over his head.
Now that Rodriguez has accepted his ban, which was administered with the help of Bosch, the MLB are set to uphold their part of the deal and drop the suit.
