Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez says he received word from the Major League Baseball Players Association that the result from his tests were negative.
Gonzalez took blood and urine tests after the Miami New Times linked him to Anthony Bosch, who reportedly supplied PEDs to professional athletes, according to the offical page of the Washington Nationals.
“Like I said before, I’ve never taken performance enhancing drugs and never will,” Gonzalez said in a story posted on Washington Nationals MLB page.
“Both came out negative like I expected. Throughout my entire career, it has been like that. I look forward to handling this with MLB and putting this behind me, and I’m looking forward to the season,” Gonzalez told, Bill Ladson of MLB.com
Gonzalez reportedly received glutathione, intramuscular shots and amino acids, but none of those substances are on Major League Baseball’s banned substances list.
At least 25 players are identified as having dealt with Anthony Bosch over the years. Gonzalez has been identified as the only Bosch client who did not receive performance-enhancing drugs, according to ESPN.
