In late January, a report came out that a "doctor" in South Florida, had been dealing PEDs to many major league baseball players. The MLB suspended minor leaguer Cesar Carillo for 100 games due to PED usage, and are going head hunting again. Earlier today, the MLB was looking at Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez, because both had tested positive for PED usage in the past. Braun did not get a suspension, due to a very well handled appeal. Now, the MLB is looking at the list as a whole, which includes:
Melky Cabrera (Blue Jays OF)--Suspended Last Year for PEDs
Bartolo Colon (A's Pitcher)--Suspended Last Year
Nelson Cruz (Rangers OF)--No Suspension
Alex Rodriguez (Yankees 3B)--No Suspension (Has been suspended before)
Gio Gonzalez (Nationals P)--No Suspension
Ryan Braun (Brewers OF)--No Suspension (Appealed suspension for PED last year)
And up to as many as 14 more athletes could be linked in some way to the clinic.
Gonzalez, Rodriguez, and Cruz all denied the usage and acquisition of these drugs. The MLB will probably be handing out some suspensions here within the next few days.
