Nelson Cruz could be facing suspension and the Texas Rangers' outfield plans for 2013 have become clouded after Cruz was tied to a South Florida anti-aging clinic that allegedly supplied performance-enhancing drugs to six major leaguers. The right fielder was one of five All-Stars who were named Tuesday in a report by the Miami New Times, which gained access to the files of clinic chief Anthony Bosch. Cruz is referred to as "Mohamad" in the files. The New Times cited one entry from July that suggests Cruz paid $4,000 for supplements, one of which contained a significant amount of synthetic testosterone. The Rangers said that they were contacted last week by the New Times, and informed Major League Baseball. ACES Inc., which represents Cruz, declined comment.
