The MLB Players Association is investigating the role several agents may have played in the Biogenesis scandal which led to multiple PED suspensions last season, reports T.J. Quinn of ESPN.

The inquiry began several months ago and has reportedly focused on Ryan Braun representatives CAA, and ACES which represents 10 of the 25 MLB players identified as Biogenesis clients. Braun admitted his affiliation with the Miami-based clinic and was suspended for 65 games last season.

ACES has dealt with union investigations previously, when Melky Cabrera's agent Juan Carlos Nunez was found to have been part of a cover-up attempt for the sluggers 2012 positive test that involved setting up a false website for a supplement. Nunez was decertified by the MLBPA but the investigation found the agency was unaware of his malfeasance.

If the union finds that the agents were guiding players towards Biogenesis or were complicit in any cover up, the agents would likely be decertified and banned from representing baseball players in the future.

The investigation is being led by Washington, D.C. attorney Robert Muse, who was involved in the Watergate and Iran-Contra probes. A final report is believed to be coming in the next few weeks.
