Brewers slugger Ryan Braun has been suspended for the rest of the 2013 season without pay, effective immediately, MLB has announced.
The MLB will reportedly suspend about 20 players, including Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz, for their involvement in a Miami clinic that allegedly supplied them with performance enhancers.
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.
