I said we shouldn't have re-signed this bum and voila, here we go AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Guy is a complete loser! DFA him immediately!
MLB believes both players lied about their connection to the clinic. The lying as well as the actual connection to the clinic are considered by MLB to be separate offenses.
The report also states that Anthony Bosch, who owned the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic, will swear an affidavit for MLB that he did distribute banned drugs to players and that suspensions could be handed out within two weeks.
It is possible the number of players facing suspension could grow. MLB knows about 20 players through records they have already obtained. "Outside the Lines" reports that Bosch may provide names of other players.
Other players facing suspension include Melky Cabrera (Blue Jays), Bartolo Colon (A's), Yasmani Grandal (Padres), Nelson Cruz (Rangers), Francisco Cervelli (Yankees), Jesus Montero (Mariners), Jhonny Peralta (Tigers), Cesar Puello (Mets minor leaguer), Fernando Martinez (Astros), Everth Cabrera (Padres), Fautino de los Santos (formerly of the A's), and Jordan Norberto (formerly of the A's).
