The league's long and winding search for a hard copy of the Biogenesis records that implicates several MLB players may be at an end. Major League Baseball's investigators are scheduled to interview former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer this week, and he is expected to "reveal his detailed records" from the clinic, reports TMZ.

Fischer proclaims to have damning information on more than 100 players -- Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Bruan included -- which he will share with the league in exchange for a "consultant" fee.
Fischer was unmasked by the Miami New Times two weeks ago as the original whistleblower in baseball's latest PED scandal. His original motivation for releasing the documents was to punish clinic director Tony Bosch, who he felt had cheated him out of money. The 48-year-old handed over the clinic documents to the New Times anonymously in January, but decided to remove the veil a few weeks ago "in the hopes the real miscreants will be punished" after boxes of documents were stolen out of the back of his car
The league reportedly reached out to Fischer on several occasions over the last few months, but was unable to come to any sort of an agreement at the time. In his interview with the New Times, Fischer called MLB the "biggest scumbags on Earth," but apparently that won't stop him from accepting their money. Considering his stance on the league and Bosch just a few weeks ago, Craig Calcaterra at HBT believes that MLB may have a tough time getting Fischer's testimony to stand up when the arbitration process eventually starts up.
