NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez was ensnared in a doping investigation once again Tuesday.

An alternative weekly newspaper in Miami reports baseball's highest-paid star was among a half-dozen players listed in records of a Florida clinic the paper said sold performance-enhancing drugs.

The Miami New Times reports the three-time AL MVP bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, Fla., near Rodriguez's offseason home.

The newspaper said it obtained records detailing purchases by Rodriguez, 2012 All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera, 2005 AL Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon and 2011 AL championship series MVP Nelson Cruz of Texas.
