Report: MLB will wait to interview alleged PEDs users, voided contracts unlikely
The latest on the Major League Baseball investigation into performance-enhancing drugs includes MLB officials judiciously gathering information in South Florida and Alex Rodriguez likely avoiding having his Yankees contract voided, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
Major League Baseball will wait to interview players linked to a Miami-area “wellness” clinic by a Miami New Times report this week. While the league was already investigating PEDs issues in South Florida, officials want to build as definitive a case as possible before interviewing players such as Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez and Nelson Cruz.
MLB reportedly is already interviewing “people” associated with the University of Miami.
Heyman reports the Yankees are letting MLB handle Rodriguez’s alleged ties to the clinic and there is no belief that any team can void a contract based on PEDs use. Penalties for PEDs use in MLB’s drug agreement do not include an option for voiding a contract.
