Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz said Friday it was "shocking" and "depressing" to see his name came up in connection with a Florida clinic now at the center of Major League Baseball's latest drug investigation.
Ryan Braun had already let it be known he was not taking any questions about his reported link to a Florida anti-aging clinic when he faced reporters outside the Milwaukee Brewers' spring training clubhouse on Friday.
Gonzalez, whose name surfaced in a report by the Miami New Times, said he has cooperated with Major League Baseball's investigation into the matter and felt "very confident" that he will be cleared when the investigation is complete.
Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke strongly defended slugger Ryan Braun on Saturday night, saying he's upset over the possibility that the 2011 NL MVP was linked to baseball's latest drug investigation for no good reason.
Baseball union head Michael Weiner said it would be unfair to make judgments about players and agents before evidence is sorted out in the sport's latest drug investigation.
Alex Rodriguez is in the middle of Major League Baseball's latest doping investigation after an alternative weekly newspaper reported baseball's highest-paid star was among the big leaguers listed in the records of a Florida clinic the paper said sold performance-enhancing drugs.
Alex Rodriguez was speaking on a conference call.
Alex Rodriguez was ensnared in a doping investigation once again Tuesday when an alternative weekly newspaper reported baseball's highest-paid star was among a half-dozen players listed in records of a Florida clinic the paper said sold performance-enhancing drugs.
The Miami New Times said the three-time AL MVP bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, Fla., near Rodriguez's offseason home.
Major League Baseball said it is "extremely disappointed" about new allegations of performance-enhancing drug use against Alex Rodriguez and other players contained in a newspaper report.
Alex Rodriguez denied a newspaper report that accused him of buying human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances from a Miami-area clinic.
A detailed account from the Miami New Times listed Gonzalez among several star baseball players and other athletes linked to a Miami clinic called Biogenesis run by Anthony Bosch. The report, which was based on records obtained from the clinic as well as interviews with customers and former employees, was headlined by the inclusion of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
"No doubt it's the best atmosphere I ever played in," said Cruz, who has twice reached the World Series. "Thanks to the fans, we had extra motivation you don't have every day."
