Jimmy Goins, the University of Miami strength and conditioning coach linked to Gio Gonzalez and the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal, has sued the now-shuttered anti-aging clinic, according to court records reviewed by The Washington Times.
The lawsuit filed last week in Miami-Dade circuit court also names Anthony Bosch, the would-be doctor never licensed to practice medicine in Florida who ran the clinic, Bosch’s father, Pedro, the Miami New Times, New York Times, Miami Herald and University of Miami.
In an offseason photo posted on Instagram, Gonzalez labelled Goins as his “offseason strength coach.” Gonzalez has strenuously and repeatedly denied any involvement with Biogenesis or performance-enhancing drugs.
The Miami New Times, which broke the scandal in January, said Goins was named in “multiple client lists” obtained by the newspaper. “In one detailed page dated December 14, 2011,” the newspaper wrote in the January story, “Bosch writes he’s selling him Anavar, testosterone, and a Winstrol/B-12 mix and charging him $400 a month. Another, from this past December, includes sales of HGH and testosterone.”
Major League Baseball also sued Biogenesis in March, alleging the clinic interfered with players’ contracts by providing performance-enhancing drugs.
