MIAMI (AP) -- Former Florida clinic owner Anthony Bosch is expected to plead guilty at an October hearing to a drug distribution conspiracy charge in Major League Baseball's most recent performance-enhancing substances scandal.

A Miami federal judge on Wednesday set an Oct. 16 date for Bosch to enter the plea. The former Biogenesis of America clinic owner's attorneys and federal prosecutors reached an agreement last month in which Bosch admitted providing testosterone to baseball players, from professionals to high school athletes.

Six other people are charged in the case that resulted in suspensions against numerous MLB players including New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. No players have been charged.

Bosch faces a maximum 10-year prison term but will likely get less in return for his guilty plea and cooperation.
