Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz arrived at spring training on Friday morning, and addressed the allegations that he was a client of a Miami clinic linked to performance enhancing drugs.
Major League Baseball officials have asked the Miami New Times for records the alternative newspaper obtained for a story on alleged use of banned substances by several players.
In the wake of Tuesday’s report linking Alex Rodriguez, Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez and other star players to performance-enhancing drugs, MLB plans to interview each player, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports.
Smiling, even laughing, at questions about a report linking him to a company that purports to make performance-enhancers, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Wednesday he “never, ever took” the stuff.
Nelson Cruz is reported to be on a list of players who are being said to have received PED’s from an anti-aging clinic in Miami. If this is true, it’s possible he’ll be looking at a 50 game suspension from MLB as a first time violator.
