Rangers OF Nelson Cruz denies PEDs allegations
Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz denied allegations that he purchased $4,000 worth of products from a Miami "wellness" clinic reported to have supplied performance-enhancing drugs to several major-league players, according to a statement issued through his lawyer.
Cruz was one of the major-league players, including Alex Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez and Bartolo Colon, to be linked to Biogenesis through a now closed "wellness clinic" run by Anthony Bosch, according to a Miami New Times report.
“We are aware of certain allegations and inferences,” Cruz’s law firm, Farrell & Reisinger, said in a statement released to the Associated Press. “To the extent these allegations and inferences refer to Nelson, they are denied.”
The Dallas Morning News reports Farrell & Reisinger is not Cruz’s baseball representative. He is represented by Seth and Sam Levinson of ACEs. The statement apparently was released before Thursday.
