The news that MLB was trying to look into the Miami-based clinic of one Anthony Bosch hadn’t attracted much attention up until now, however the leaking of a report from one of the clinics former employees to a local newspaper will soon be changing all that. The Miami New Times appears to be in the possession of extensive records from the Biogenesis clinic linking a number of sportsman to performance enhancing drugs, including a several current major leaguers. The headlines will undoubtedly be taken by Alex Rodriguez as the information reportedly alleges that the Yankees third baseman was being supplied with PEDs by the clinic as recently as last year, some time after Rodriguez stated he had stopped taking them following a reported failed test while he was playing for the Texas Rangers. While Rodriguez is mentioned 16 times in the report the New Times has possession of, there are also mentions for Yasmani Grandal, Bartolo Colon and Melky Cabrera; all of whom have tested positive for illegal substances in the past 12 months. The detail involved in the report may well prove to be damning for those involved as it appears to give specific information regarding dates, substances and amount for all those allegedly on Biogenesis’ ‘books. While this may simply turn out to be proof and further details of cases we were already familiar with, the inclusion of both Nelson Cruz and Gio Gonzalez’s names in the report creates new suspicion for the two players. Although there is some suggestion that the Gonzalez referred to in the report may be Gio’s father, the detail given can surely be cross-checked and will likely mean that both Gonzalez and Cruz will have some questions to answer. The full New Times report is worth a read and may be a sign that a new BALCO-like facility has been uncovered in Miami.
