Anthony Bosch, the former owner of the Biogenesis clinic, had his bail revoked Monday after twice testing positive for cocaine in August and failing to regularly attend voluntary drug treatment, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Bosch, 51, has been charged with conspiracy to distribute steroids.

"I simply have no confidence in his ability to appear as required," U.S. District Judge Darrin P.​ Gayles said at a hearing.

The clinic was the focus of Major League Baseball's recent investigation into performance-enhancing drugs.

Alex Rodriguez was one of 14 players suspended after the investigation. His initial 211-game suspension was reduced to 162 games on appeal.

If convicted, Bosch could face up to 10 years in prison. ​The AP notes that Bosch will probably receive a shorter sentence because, as part of his plea agreement, he has cooperated with prosecutors in investigating others charged in the case.

Bosch is set to plead guilty next week.
