ABC NEWS -- Major League Baseball is expected to speak with the founder of defunct anti-aging clinic who is part of an ongoing investigation for allegedly supplying performance enhancing drugs to about 20 players, which could result in suspensions to superstars Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, according to ESPN.

Tony Bosch, the founder of Biogenesis of America in Miami, Fla., has agreed to talk with MLB this Friday about its ongoing investigation and to supply information about the doping scandal, according to ESPN program "Outside the Lines," citing sources familiar with the situation.

Bosch is expected to say that he provided banned drugs to players and, in the case of Rodriguez, he injected the ailing New York Yankee slugger himself, ESPN reported.

When Biogenesis folded late last year, records from the clinic were released to the public in a Miami New Times report. They allegedly showed doping by as many as 20 players including Rodriguez, Braun, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera and Texas Rangers' outfielder Nelson Cruz. After the documents surfaced, MLB said it was reviewing the information.
