Rodriguez, Cruz Among Names Listed For SteroidsSports Tuesday, January 29th, 2013
NEW YORK (AP) _ Major League Baseball says it is “extremely disappointed” about new allegations of performance-enhancing drug use against Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and other players contained in a newspaper report.
The Miami New Times says it had obtained files through an employee at a recently closed clinic in the Miami area that show A-Rod purchased HGH and other substances.
Rodriguez has admitted using steroids from 2001-03 but insisted he stopped after that. He’s currently recovering from offseason hip surgery.
Other players on the list include 2012 All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon and Nelson Cruz. Cabrera and Colon were each suspended for failing drug tests last season.
MLB says it has actively been involved in the issues in South Florida, through its Department of Investigations and will have “no further comment until that investigation has concluded.”
