DENVER — Major League Baseball is looking to suspend about 20 players including Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and the Brewers’ Ryan Braun. That’s according to a report by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”

The 20 players are linked to a Miami-area clinic named Biogenesis.

Major League Baseball says the clinic provided players with illegal enhancements.

If the suspensions take place and are upheld after appeal, the performance-enhancing drug scandal would be the largest in American sports history.

It could result in a 100-game suspension for Rodriguez and Braun. That’s the penalty for a second doping offense.

There are no Colorado Rockies players on the list.
