Earlier today the news dropped that Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and Gio Gonzalez were treated at a South Florida clinic where they allegedly received performance-enhancing drugs. Well Alex Rodriguez & Gio Gonzalez has made a statement regarding the report.
The public relations firm Sitrick and Company issued a statement on behalf of Rodriguez on Tuesday.
“The news report about a purported relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch are not true,” the statement says. “Alex Rodriguez was not Mr. Bosch’s patient, he was never treated by him and he was never advised by him. The purported documents referenced in the story — at least as they relate to Alex Rodriguez — are not legitimate.”
The Yankees also issued a statement Tuesday, saying: “We fully support the Commissioner’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. This matter is now in the hands of the Commissioner’s Office. We will have no further comment until that investigation has concluded.”
Gio Gonzalez issued a statement Tuesday that appeared in the Washington Times:
“I’ve never used performance-enhancing drugs of any kind, and I never will,” the statement says. “I’ve never met or spoken with Tony Bosch or used any substances provided by him. Anything said to the contrary is a lie.”
