Report: Robinson Cano not tied to Biogenesis clinic
New York Yankees star Robinson Cano does not appear to be linked to Anthony Bosch and his Biogenesis clinic, according to a report Monday evening in the New York Daily News.
According to the report, Cano’s name is not on Major League Baseball’s list of players who allegedly obtained performance-enhancing drugs from Bosch. The Daily News report comes after an earlier ESPN.com story on Monday said that Sonia Cruz, the spokeswoman for Cano’s foundation, was a client of Bosch’s last summer.
According to the Daily News, more documents on the clinic exist, meaning Cano’s name could turn up in the future. But for now, he is not being investigated.
Before the Yankees took on the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, Cano again denied any involvement with the clinic.
“It doesn’t have anything to do with me,” Cano said, according to the Daily News. “I’m going to play my game. … I didn’t see what the story said but I have no comment. I’m just going to focus on the game and help this team to win games.”
Cruz told ESPN.com that she never received anything from the clinic, and she added that Cano “definitely never did.”
