Initial Doping Scandal

In 2009, Sports Illustrated reported that Rodriguez had tested positive for two anabolic steroids, testosterone and Primobolan, while playing for the Texas Rangers in 2003. Rodriguez's name appeared on a list of 104 players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball's 2003 survey, which was compiled to determine whether mandatory drug testing should be implemented. At the time, there was no punishment for a positive test result. (Photo: Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images)
