ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano has denied any involvement with a South Florida clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball after a report linked an associate of his to the facility.
ESPN reported Monday that the spokeswoman for Cano’s foundation is listed as having been a client of Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables. She told ESPN she did not receive anything from the clinic and said Cano never did, either.
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is among the big leaguers linked to clinic. The Miami New Times reported in January it had obtained files showing Rodriguez bought banned substances from the facility. Rodriguez’s spokesman has denied the allegations in the New Times report.
