Found February 06, 2013 on Bronx Pinstripes:
The names just keep on coming. Today, The Daily News has learned that former Yankees top prospect Jesus Montero, now of the Seattle Mariners, appears on records from the “anti-aging” clinic in Miami, Fla. Montero, 23, was traded to Seattle last winter in exchange for Michael Pineda. The extent of Montero’s involvement with the clinic is not yet known. Yesterday, news broke that former NL MVP Ryan Braun appeared on a list from the clinic as well. Braun originally failed a drug test last year, but appealed and won, claiming his sample was mishandled, causing the positive test. Braun said in a statement that his only involvement with the clinic came when he and his agents consulted owner Anthony Bosch to gain more knowledge on how a sample could be tampered with. Yankees backup catcher Francisco Cervelli was also linked to the clinic. He came out via twitter claiming he was trying to recover from an injury last year, and took supplements from Bosch that he thought were allowed by Major League Baseball. MLB is investigating the matter, and will conduct interviews with those involved to gain a better understanding of what seems to be a major PED operation. As the investigation unfolds, more names could be released, creating more headaches for baseball and it’s fans.

Don’t Believe The Hype: The King Needs To Stay

Towards the end of the 2005 season, the Seattle Mariners had very little to be hopeful about. Despite much success around the turn of the century, it was clear that their run was ending.

Mariners Best Year May Have Been Worst Draft

Replacing Alex Rodriguez isn’t a realistic target to throw on any draft pick, or even on a pair of draft picks.
