MIAMI (AP) - The owner of a defunct Florida clinic accused of providing steroids and other banned substances to Major League Baseball players has agreed to plead guilty to a federal charge.

Prosecutors said at a news conference Tuesday that Anthony Bosch will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute testosterone.

Court documents say that from October 2008 through December 2012, Bosch willfully conspired to distribute the anabolic steroid testosterone.

Fourteen players associated with the Coral Gables clinic were disciplined last year by MLB, including a season-long 2014 suspension imposed on New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.

Also charged along with Bosch were six others who authorities said acted as recruiters.
