Major League Baseball has experienced an astounding series of events regarding performance-enhancing drugs, and the latest case – Anthony Bosch‘s list of players who allegedly received PEDs — continues to grow as more reports are revealed.
According documents obtained by ESPN’s Outside the Lines, five more players have been implicated in the scandal. However, it’s not known if the alleged players used or received the banned drugs from the Miami dealer.
The five players named in the latest report were San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, newly acquired Padres reliever Fautino De Los Santos, Oakland A’s reliever Jordan Norberto, Houston Astros outfielder Fernando Martinez and New York Mets prospect Cesar Puello.
Additionally, according to two sources close to Bosch’s activity, Gio Gonzalez, who was linked to the earlier Biogenesis investigation, has been found to have not received banned substances from Bosch or his Miami clinic.

A lot will be expected of Bryce Harper as he enters his second full season with the Washington Nationals.

Previously linked to the Biogenesis clinic in south Florida, Gio Gonzalez has maintained that he did not receive any substances banned by Major League Baseball.
The latest documents appear to support Gonzalez’ claim according to ESPN.
Both sources, speaking independently, identified Gonzalez as the only Bosch client named thus far who did not receive performance-enhancing drugs...
According to ESPN’s ‘Outside the Lines,” Gio Gonzalez (recently included in the Biogenesis doping scandal) did not obtain any performance enhancing drugs from the clinic or from Anthony Bosch. Two sources familiar with the operation had previously included Gonzalez on a list with Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and Bartolo Colon. These same...
Jordan Zimmermann might be the best Number 3 starter in baseball. You can argue whether Strasburg or Gonzalez is Number 1, but everyone will agree that those two are your top two. But then you get Jordan Zimmermann on the third day and that is not a picnic by any stretch of the imagination. Gonzalez had a WHIP of 1.129 and Strasburg finished 2012 with a 1.155. Right behind them...

An undeserved .232 batting average and just 58 RBI in Jayson Werth‘s debut season as a National (2011) sank him to the 217th overall ranking in fantasy. In injury-riddled, yet surprisingly productive, 2012 campaign saw him rank just 325th overall. This year Yahoo! has Werth ranked just 215th in its preseason rankings.Have we all forgotten how great Werth was from 2008-2010?Last...
