According to a new report, Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera and reliever Fautino De Los Santos are among the latest names on a list of players linked to Anthony Bosch's controversial Biogenesis clinic. As reported by ESPN.com's Mike Fish and T.J. Quinn: "Sources said the players, like those who have been named in previous Biogenesis documents, were on a list as having received performance-enhancing drugs, although the documents are not proof that the players either received or used PEDs." Cabrera and De Los Santos join catcher Yasmani Grandal as Padres linked to the Miami-based clinic. On Saturday, Grandal, who has been suspended 50 games for a positive test for testosterone, briefly addressed his appearance in the Biogenesis documents. Cabrera, 26, led the National League with 44 stolen bases last season after being called up from Triple-A in May. He batted .246 with 2 home runs and 24 RBIs, though he showed particular improvement over the last month of the season. He signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract entering this season. The Padres claimed De Los Santos off waivers Feb. 6. The 27-year-old has thrown just 36.1 innings across the first two seasons of his MLB career. It bears repeating that the Biogenesis documents are not proof that the named players either received or used PEDs. But it certainly isn't positive news, especially now with three Padres on a list of 25.
