The former Biogenesis employee who leaked documents linking Alex Rodriguez and other Major League Baseball stars to the now-defunct South Florida clinic is in negotiations to share his story — and possibly records that link scores of other athletes to performance-enhancing drugs — to Radar Online. Two insiders close to baseball’s latest doping scandal told the Daily News that the celebrity news website is interested in hiring former Biogenesis marketing agent Porter Fischer as a consultant. One of the sources said Fischer is eager to work with Radar Online because he believes his role in the scandal that could lead to suspensions for Rodriguez, Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun and almost two dozen other players has been distorted by the media. The News reported last week that Fischer had recently approached Rodriguez’s representatives and offered to sell them the records he took from Biogenesis owner Anthony Bosch in exchange for a seven-figure payday. TMZ, meanwhile reported that Fischer had sought $1 million from baseball investigators for the documents. The source, however, said that Fischer had never approached Rodriguez or MLB seeking big paydays for the documents. MLB investigators, according to the source, have aggressively pursued Fischer in an attempt to get him to share records and tell them what he knows about Bosch and his now-shuttered anti-aging facility. But if Fischer is able to reach an agreement with Radar Online, he won’t work for free: Another source said the company expects to offer Fischer six-figure compensation for his cooperation. Sources have told The News that Fischer’s value to MLB investigators is questionable because it is not clear if he actually witnessed any of Bosch’s alleged transactions with big leaguers — and because Bosch himself has already begun sharing information with baseball officials. But the second source said he believes Fischer has plenty to share with Radar Online. “He’s got more documents than anyone else does,” the source said.
