According to the Miami New Times both Alex Rodriguez and Nelson Cruz and more than a half dozen other players were supplied performing enhancing drugs by a South Florida Biochemist named Anthony Bosch.
Bosch had reportedly given out the human growth hormone to several Major Leaguers that have already been caught by MLB officials.(Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon and Yasmai Grandal). Adding Cruz and Roriguez to the list only adds fuel to the notoriety of this doping scandal.
Then check out the main column, where their real names flash like an all-star roster of professional athletes with Miami ties: San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland A’s hurler Bartolo Colón, pro tennis player Wayne Odesnik, budding Cuban superstar boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz. There’s even the New York Yankees’ $275 million man himself, Alex Rodriguez, who has sworn he stopped juicing a decade ago.
Read further and you’ll find more than a dozen other baseball pros, from former University of Miami ace Cesar Carrillo to Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal to Washington Nationals star Gio Gonzalez. Notable coaches are there too, including UM baseball conditioning guru Jimmy Goins.
This is the second time Alex Rodriguez has been listed on a PED report. A-Rod admitted that he used PEDs from 2001-2003 but denies any claims that he has since. I’m sure baseball would like to close the door on this era of PEDs and steroid use, and they will get to the bottom of this cause.
