Former Tucson Padre surprised about PED link
Reporter: Jason Barr, Sports Director
PEORIA. (AP) - San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera says he was "a little surprised" and "disappointed" by a report that his name was listed in the records of a now-closed Florida clinic at the center of a Major League Baseball investigation into banned performance-enhancing drugs.
ESPN reported Tuesday that Cabrera was on a list as having received performance-enhancing drugs, although the network said the documents are not proof he used or received them.
Cabrera declined specific comment on Biogenesis of America, the closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Fla. He did not say whether he had taken, purchased or received performance-enhancing drugs.
Cabrera says "I'm going to fully cooperate with Major League Baseball, but I can't say anything about that right now."
Cabrera played in 34 games for the Tucson Padres in 2012.
