CBS will detail Major League Baseball's case against New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, who was banned from the sport for a year because of performance-enhancing drugs, an a report on "60 Minutes."

The report, to be broadcast Sunday, will include interviews with Anthony Bosch, the former CEO of Biogenesis, who told the league that he injected Rodriguez with doping drugs.

Biogenesis is a Miami-area anti-aging clinic that provided Rodriguez with the drugs.

Rodriguez, a 14-time All-Star and three-time Most Valuable Player, was banned on Saturday for 162 games, plus the offseason this year by an arbitrator.

The decision will cost Rodriguez $25 million in salary plus millions more in performance incentives, according to news reports.

According to CBS, Bosch told Scott Pelley for the "60 Minutes" report that he personally delivered banned substances to Rodriguez at least a dozen times and that the slugger paid him $12,000 a month in cash.

He also said that he injected Rodriguez with the drugs because “Alex is scared of needles, so at times, he would ask me to inject.”

The program also obtained text messages between Bosch and Rodriguez, indicating that there were times when the pair communicated daily about the substances the slugger took on his "protocol."

Rodriguez, who declined to be interviewed for the CBS report, has vehemently denied acquiring the drugs as he battled allegations while attacking both league officials and the Yankees.

He continued to deny using the drugs during the period in question, and vowed to appeal the arbitrator's decision in federal court.
