NEW YORK — Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun said he used the person who ran the Florida clinic being investigated by Major League Baseball only as a consultant on his drug suspension appeal last year.
“I have nothing to hide,” Braun said in a statement his representatives released to The Associated Press.
Earlier in the day, Yahoo Sports reported the 2011 NL MVP’s name showed up three times in records of the Biogenesis of America LLC clinic. Yahoo said no specific performance-enhancing drugs were listed next to his name.
The Miami New Times recently released clinic documents that purportedly linked Alex Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez, Melky Cabrera and other players to purchases of banned drugs from the now-closed anti-aging center.
