Oh, another Oakland A’s player linked to PED use. What’s new?
Anyway, reliever Jordan Norberto on Tuesday was among five additional baseball players named by an ESPN report to have ties with Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis of America, the Miami-area clinic at the heart of baseball’s latest fast-developing steroid scandal.
Sources said the players, like those who have been named in previous Biogenesis documents, were on a list as having received performance-enhancing drugs, although the documents are not proof that the players either received or used PEDs.
Former A’s reliever Fautino De Los Santos was also among the five players mentioned in ESPN’s report.
Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and Melky Cabrera are among other players who have recently been implicated in the Biogenesis scandal. Former A’s starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez has also previously been accused of having ties to the lab, but ESPN’s report absolves Gonzalez of any wrongdoing.
The A’s, Norberto and Norberto’s people aren’t sayin...
