ESPN is reporting 5 new names that are linked to the Biogenesis clinic. Among the names one is of a former Mets prospect and current Astro Fernando Martinez and one is a current Mets prospect Cesar Puello. The other 3 names are Padres SS Everth Cabrera, A’s reliever Jordan Norberto and reliever Fautino De Los Santos who was claimed off waivers by the Padres.
The report says the players were on a list as having received performance-enhancing drugs but it should be noted this alone is not proof that any of the players either received or used PEDs. Adam Rubin of ESPN tweeted the following response from the Mets regarding these news.
#Mets statement on Puello: “Because of the ongoing investigation,we have no comment. We refer all questions to Major League Baseball.”
