Alex Rodriguez PED use is in the news again. Performance-enhancing drugs are already a part of the history that Rodriguez has created in Major League Baseball, but a report on Tuesday (Jan. 29) seems to indicate that he might not have been completely honest about his drug use.
It appears that the Miami New Times has acquired a list of MLB players that were using an anti-aging clinic in Miami. This clinic reportedly dispensed performance-enhancing drugs and it has the names of Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, and Gio Gonzalez. There are likely other names on the list as well, but these are the star players that really stand out from the group.
Rodriguez has already hired an attorney to refute his involvement and dispute any claims of his name on these lists. It will certainly be interesting to see where this story heads from now, though, especially with the PED use that Rodriguez has been linked to in the past. He originally denied every using anything to aid his performance, but backtracked on that story after enough evidence began piling up against him.
Another scandal involving alleged Alex Rodriguez PED use could certainly put an end to his hopes of ever making it into the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is likely that many voters have already turned against him because of the PEDs he has used in the past, but this latest scandal isn't going to win him any allies either. The New York Yankees organization might not have signed him to that huge contract if they knew some of this information beforehand.
