Danny Valencia has issued a statement about a Yahoo Sports report linking his name to the ongoing investigation regarding the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic providing performance enhancing drugs to players. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick passed this along on his Twitter feed…
“As any innocent person would be, I am shocked and troubled that my name is in any way connected to this story. I have never met or spoken to anyone connected with Biogenesis, in fact I had never even heard of this company prior to the New Times’ story. I take tremendous pride in the hard work and dedication I put into being a professional baseball player and have never taken PEDs or failed a drug test of any kind during my career. I look forward to fully cooperating in MLB’s investigation in any way that I can, and will explore taking legal action if this issue is not resolved in a timely fashion.”
