(109 The Fan) – A source confirmed to the New York Daily News that Mariners’ designated hitter and catcher Jesus Montero appears in records from the South Florida anti-aging clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs. The clinic is run by biochemist Anthony Bosch
Montero, 23, is a client of agents Seth and Sam Levinson; The two have been under investigation by Major League Baseball since last summer after one of their clients, San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone.
Mariners fans should not panic or rush to conclusions though: Montero’s name being in the records does not directly mean he used any sort of performance-enhancing drug during his major league career.
Montero told the Seattle Times Wednesday he has no idea why his name is on the list. He claims to never have been a client of the clinic or owner Anthony Bosch.
