The commissioner of Major League Baseball is not tipping his hand about the league's ongoing investigation into the use of performance-enhancing drugs by its players.

On the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, Bud Selig was short on details when the topic, specifically incidents connected to the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic in Florida, was broached.

“We’re in the midst of a very thorough and tough investigation on all of this,” Selig said, “because I really believe it’s not only the right thing to do but we’re going to do it and that’s all I can tell you.”

Selig, who has been MLB's commissioner since 1992, wouldn’t offer any names but admitted he is well aware of which players are in hot water.

As for the number of players set to be suspended, Selig said, “We don’t know yet.”

Letterman tried to get Selig to budge on reports of Alex Rodriguez being one of the culprits but only got a response of: “Only time will tell."

Selig, 78, is currently in New York for all-star festivities.
