Bad news for former Texas Ranger and current New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez.  He has been connected to Major League Baseball’s latest doping investigation.  Miami New Times says baseball’s highest paid player bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances between 2009 and 2012 from an anti-aging clinic in South Florida.  Biogenesis is the company in question and has been since 2009.  But now there is new evidence about who some of their clients may be.  Here’s a short list of some baseball stars connected with this company:

  • Texas Rangers star right fielder Nelson Cruz.
  • 2012 All-Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera who received a 50-game suspension while a member of the San Francisco Giants for performance-enhancement drug use.  He signed a 2 year/$16 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays in November.
  • Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Bartolo Colon, who also received a 50-game suspension in 2012 for performance-enhancement drug use.  He recently had his contract renewed with the A’s.
  • Plus others

There are more than just pro baseball players listed.  Included are boxing stars and even college athletes on the client list.
