Major League Baseball players Alex Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez, Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera are among the athletes connected to performance-enhancing drugs to appear on records from a Miami anti-aging clinic, according to a Miami New Times report. The report includes records from a Biogenesis, a South Florida clinic, which cites those players as being among those who received various performance-enhancing substances from clinic head Anthony Bosch, who is already being investigated by MLB and the DEA. The athletes named have South Florida connections. The Miami New Times said the records show the firm sold human growth hormone, testosterone and anabolic steroids. Bosch, 49, was also linked to former slugger Manny Ramirez when he received a 50-game suspension for violating baseball's drug policy in 2009. The findings stem from a three-month investigation, the Miami New Times said. On Saturday, news broke that MLB was investigating wellness clinics in South Florida, as well as those with possible paths to players. Rodriguez has admitted to steroid use from 2001-03, but said he hasn't used PEDs since. The New Times report said his appears 16 times in the reviewed records, including one from Bosch's private notebooks that said Rodriguez paid $3,500 for "1.5/1.5 HGH (sports perf.), creams test., glut., MIC, supplement, sports perf. Diet." Other entries for Rodriguez begin in 2009 and continue through last season. Cabrera is mentioned 14 times in the Biogenesis report, according to the paper. He received a 50-game suspension last August for violating baseball's performance enhancing drugs policy while with the San Francisco Giants. The paper's report cited April 2012 entries that said Cabrera "has enough meds until May 4." Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz and was also named. The Rangers issued a statement: "The Texas Rangers were contacted late last week by Miami New Times regarding the story posted this morning. At that time, the Rangers contacted Major League Baseball on that inquiry. The team has no further comment." Washington Nationals 21-game winner Gio Gonzalez is listed five times.
