Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz said that he hasn't spoken to Major League Baseball investigators about his involvement with an anti-aging clinic that allegedly provided him with performance-enhancing drugs.
Cruz was asked Tuesday night about an ESPN report that says Cruz could be among 20 players suspended up to 100 games for receiving banned substances from Biogenesis of America. The clinic's founder, Tony Bosch, will provide MLB with all the details about his clients, accoriding to an anonymous source in the ESPN report.
Cruz had been told about the report before the media was allowed to enter the clubhouse.
"I cannot say anything," said Cruz, who has never failed a drug test but can be suspended based on evidence that he possessed PEDs. "I guess it's part of the process. They're doing their job. I don't have any other comment about it."
The Rangers also declined comment, though a source said MLB had not contacted the club with any word of a possible suspension for Cruz.
