The Miami News Times published an article on Tuesday following a three-month investigation that has plenty of people across baseball talking. The article, which was based on records obtained from an anti-aging clinic in south Florida, links multiple MLB players to performance-enhancing drugs.
The players named in the report include Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon and Yasmani Grandal.
Major League Baseball has since issued a statement, which can be seen in its entirety below.
“We are always extremely disappointed to learn of potential links between players and the use of performance-enhancing substances. These developments, however, provide evidence of the comprehensive nature of our anti-drug efforts. Through our Department of Investigations, we have been actively involved in the issues in South Florida. It is also important to note that three of the players allegedly involved have already been disciplined under the Joint Drug Program.
