New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez was banned for 211 games by Major League Baseball when he was indicted in the Biogenesis scandal that plagued the league.

That ban was reduced to 162 games by an arbitrator, but Rodriguez still missed the whole of the 2014 season, in which the Yankees struggled completely.

Rodriguez always maintained his innocence in the case, well until now that is. According to a report from the Miami Herald, A-Rod admitted to DEA officials in a January meeting that he used performance-enhancing drugs obtained from the Biogenesis clinic.

A-Rod's Admittance

According to the expose, Rodriguez told DEA agents and prosecutors that he paid Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch around $12,000 a month for PEDs and that Rodriguez had his cousin, Yuri Sucart, serve as his middleman between him and Bosch so A-Rod would not be implicated if caught.

That meeting took place on January 29th, weeks after the arbitrator finalized his ban. A-Rod maintained his innocence in the public after the admission.
