Montero’s Agents Claim No Affiliation With Clinic Under Investigation
SEATTLE (AP) — The agents who represent Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero and Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera say no one at their agency has ever heard of or knows anyone at the Florida anti-aging clinic currently under investigation by Major League Baseball.
In a statement Wednesday, Sam and Seth Levinson say no one at their agency, AECS, had ever heard of Anthony Bosch until his name surfaced in news reports recently.
The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Montero is named in records from Biogenesis of America LLC. The Miami New Times recently released clinic documents that purportedly linked Cabrera, Alex Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez and other players to purchases of banned drugs from the now-closed anti-aging center.
The Mariners said Wednesday they support the league’s drug program and are disappointed when they hear of any players potentially involved with banned substances. The team said it spoke with the league about the Montero report. The team said it would have no further comment.
