MIAMI (CBSMiami) – After peddling performance-enhancing drugs to professional baseball players, its Anthony Bosch who says he needs more drug rehab.

Bosch has admitted to having a cocaine addiction. His attorney Guy Lewis is now asking that his sentencing in the drug case be delayed - from December 18th to February 6th - so that Bosch can enter a second phase of treatment for his addiction. A judge must approve the request.

Bosch pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy to distribute testosterone to MLB players and others from the now-closed Biogenesis of America clinic in Coral Gables. Among the customers was New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, who was suspended for the entire 2014 season.

Bosch faces a maximum 10-year prison sentence but will likely get less because of his cooperation in the Biogenesis investigation.
