More bad news for agents Seth and Sam Levinson: Their client, former Yankee catcher Jesus Montero, is named in records from a South Florida anti-aging clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs, the Daily News has learned.
Montero, a top prospect who was traded to the Mariners before last season, is just the latest client of ACES, the Levinson brothers’ Brooklyn-based sports agency, who has been linked to Biogenesis, the now-shuttered Coral Gables clinic operated by self-described “biochemist” Anthony Bosch.
The Levinson brothers have been under investigation by MLB since last summer, after another client, former Yankee Melky Cabrera, tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone. The Daily News first reported in August that Cabrera had tried to avoid a 50-game suspension by creating a fictitious website for a supplement he claimed had inadvertently caused him to test positive. The bizarre attempt to avoid discipline fell apart when MLB officials began investigating Cabrera’s claims.
Juan Nunez, the ACES associate who claimed responsibility for Cabrera’s botched supplement scheme, also appears in Bosch documents obtained and published by the Miami New Times last week. In a letter obtained by the newspaper, Bosch told Nunez that Cabrera owes him $14,000, including a $5,000 bonus because Cabrera, then with the San Francisco Giants, made the National League All-Star team. Cabrera was named the MVP of the game.
