Major League Baseball paid $125,000 to obtain Biogenesis documents, according to the New York Post.
MLB's COO Rob Manfred said while being cross-examined by Alex Rodriguez's attorney on Thursday that he authorized two payments to Biogenesis.
The documents MLB obtained were stolen from Biogenesis founder Tony Bosch.
When Rodriguez filed a lawsuit against MLB and commissioner Bud Selig on Oct. 4, the suit featured this allegation: "Dan Mullin of MLB purchased what were represented to be these stolen documents for $150,000 in cash, which was handed off in a bag at a Fort Lauderdale, Florida area restaurant."
For his ties to Biogenesis, Rodriguez was suspended 211 games by Major League Baseball, though he appealed his suspension and played through the rest of the season. Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera and Antonio Bastardo were four of 13 other players served with 50-game suspensions for their connections. All 13 players accepted their suspensions and will be eligible to play when the 2014 season begins.
The court proceedings wrapped up on Friday and will begin again in November, according to the Post.
