MIAMI — A South Florida man who admitted recruiting foreign baseball players for the operators of a steroid-dispensing clinic is set for sentencing in federal court.

The maximum faced Tuesday by Juan Carlos Nunez is 10 years behind bars, but he will likely get less. Nunez admitted in court last year that he brought professional ballplayers from the Dominican Republic and Venezuela to Anthony Bosch and the now-closed Biogenesis of America in Coral Gables.

Most of the 14 players suspended by Major League Baseball last year for using steroids supplied by Bosch were from those two countries.

Nunez said he used his position at a New York-based sports representation agency, ACES Inc., to connect with foreign players, including arranging for them to buy homes and cars and handling travel.
