ESPN is reporting that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is among five players whose names are listed in the records of a Florida clinic at the center of a Major League Baseball investigation into illegal drugs.
The report Tuesday says Cabrera, who led the NL in stolen bases last season, is listed along with Padres reliever Fautino De Los Santos, Oakland reliever Jordan Norberto, Houston outfielder Fernando Martinez and New York Mets outfield prospect Cesar Puello.
The Biogenesis of America clinic run by Anthony Bosch in Coral Gables is now closed. The facility allegedly provided performance-enhancing substances to several players, including Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera and Nelson Cruz. The players have said they didn't get illegal drugs from the clinic.
The Padres and Mets declined comment on the report.
