The league is investigating claims that Seth and Sam Levinson, the same agents at ACES Inc. that represent Melky Cabrera, helped former major leaguer Paul Lo Duca receive steroids from Kirk Radomski, according to the USA Today.
Lo Duca and Radomski's relationship was detailed in the 2007 Mitchell Report, which included copies of checks that the Dodgers catcher had written for the performance-enhancing drugs. Now, Lo Duca is reportedly alleging that the Levinsons introduced him to Radomski and also opened a checking account with him, with the express purpose of paying for illegal drugs.
USA Today reports that it has one check showing Lo Duca and ACES Inc. as joint account holders. Levinson, while declining comment on the check, "vehemently" denied to the newspaper having any relationship with Radomski.
ACES initially drew the attention of MLB investigators after one of their consultants, Juan Nunez, was caught setting up a fake website in an attempt to exonerate Cabrera of PED use. He was subsequently banned from all MLB clubhouses.
