Attorneys for the Major League Baseball Players Association have spoken to all of the players linked to the South Florida anti-aging clinic at the center of baseball’s latest doping scandal, the head of the union told the Daily News on Wednesday.
Michael Weiner, the executive director of the MLBPA, said he expects Major League Baseball investigators to question the players linked to Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic after the World Baseball Classic ends later this month. Approximately two dozen players, including Alex Rodriguez and Francisco Cervelli of the Yankees, plus Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, Ryan Braun and Yasmani Grandal have been linked to the now-defunct Coral Gables clinic. Each player has denied receiving performance-enhancing drugs from Bosch’s clinic, but Braun said he used Bosch as a consultant last year, while Cervelli said he consulted Bosch while injured.
Weiner said last week that members of his staff had already spoken to Rodriguez and Cervelli.
“We want to make sure the players understand their obligations under the collective bargaining agreement, as well as their rights,” Weiner said.
