Major League Baseball is investigating any players linked to South Florida clinic Biogenesis, including Milwaukee Brewers' Ryan Braun and New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez.

ESPN's T.J. Quinn reported Saturday that the league is looking into players with ties to the clinic on the heels of minor league player Cesar Carrillo's 100-game suspension.

Braun and Rodriguez are prominently linked to the clinic run by Dr. Dr. Anthony Bosch. Bosch is the son of Dr. Pedro Bosch, whom MLB investigated in 2009 for his PED ties to Manny Ramirez when he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

MLB has been investigating the clinic after news of the client base surfaced last month in a Miami New Times report. More than two dozen players were identified in the clinic's documents as being clients of Bosch.

Rodriguez admitted to using PEDs in 2009 and Braun had a PED-related suspension overturned last year.

The Miami New Times refuses to turn over its files to the league for its investigation.
