(1090 The Fan) - Major League Baseball has started interviewing players linked to the Miami PED investigation, and people who have spoken to MLB investigators are convinced there will be at least some suspensions handed down in the explosive case, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

In February, Jesus Montero was named in records belonging to Biogenesis of America LLC, the now-closed clinic in Coral Gables, Florida. The clinic is accused of supplying performance-enhancing drugs to a handful of players.

Upon arriving in Peoria for Spring Training earlier this year, Montero denied involvement with the clinic saying he didn’t have anything to do “with those people.”

Heyman says the league has yet to interview Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Bruan — the two biggest names connected to the allegations.

It’s possible the league’s Joint Drug Agreement could announce suspensions before any appeal process because the names have already surfaced publicly. The players union position is that any suspension or announcement of a suspension should be held off until the appeal process is complete.

Among the other players linked to Biogenesis include Nelson Cruz, Everth Cabrera, Jhonny Peralta and Bartolo Colon. Colon was suspended for 50 games on August 22 of last year after testing positive for synthetic testosterone.
