Francisco Cervelli declined to comment further on his alleged ties to performance enhancing drugs after working out at the Yankees minor league complex yesterday. Cervelli’s name appeared in records obtained by Yahoo from Biogenesis, a closed anti-aging clinic in Miami that Major League Baseball is investigating for possibly selling PEDs to numerous players, including Alex Rodriguez. Last night, the agents who represent Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera and Mariners catcher Jesus Montero said no one at their agency knows anyone at the Florida clinic. In a statement, Sam and Seth Levinson said no one at their agency, ACES, had ever heard of clinic owner Anthony Bosch until his name surfaced in news reports. Cervelli said on Twitter Tuesday night he had only dealt with the clinic and Bosch, after his 2011 foot surgery. The catcher said he didn’t purchase any prohibited substances. He is expected to compete for the starting catcher’s job this season, along with Chris Stewart and Austin Romine.
