The Full List Of Suspended Biogenesis Clients
As we all sit and wait for MLB's official announcement on Alex Rodriguez, the players who have accepted suspensions for their roles in the Biogenesis scandal have begun to leak, including the three names that hadn't yet been leaked.
Those unexpected players, as reported by Yahoo's Jeff Passan, are the Mets' Jordany Valdespin, the Phillies' Antonio Bastardo, and the Astros' Sergio Escalona.
Fox Sports's Ken Rosenthal reports that those three, as well as previously mentioned players Nelson Cruz, Everth Cabrera, and Jhonny Peralta will be accepting 50-game suspensions, the same as a failed test under the Joint Drug Agreement.
Additional players facing punishment include Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli, and minor leaguers Cesar Puello, Fautino De Los Santos, Fernando Martinez, and Jordan Norberto.
Bartolo Colon, Melky Cabrera, and Yasmani Grandal will not face further punishment, as they had already served 50-game suspensions for failing drug tests.
Washington's Gio Gonzalez and Baltimore's Danny Valencia, despite being mentioned in early Biogenesis reports, have been cleared of wrongdoing by MLB's investigation.
The announcements on the suspension lengths of the other players, including Alex Rodriguez, are still forthcoming.
