MLB Today: Francisco Cervelli Denies Using PEDs

February 13, 2013 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Chris Stewart has a chance to be the starting catcher for the New York Yankees.
Chris Stewart’s chances of winning the starter job are better now.

You can add New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli to the list of players denying getting any PEDs from Biogenesis, the Miami clinic that is currently being investigated by MLB.

Cervelli admitted to consulting with Biogenesis head Anthony Bosch about the foot he broke in Spring Training two years ago, but said he only received “suggestions.”

He added: “I just went there, talked, and that’s it. I walked away without nothing in my hands.”

Apparently, Cervelli is unclear on what happens when you use a double-negative. It sure sounds like he’s admitting that he was given something! Besides, we’re not interested in what he had in his hands; it’s his blood stream that we’re wondering about.

Cervelli added that he didn’t receive any treatment at the clinic and that it was not able to help him at all. He added that he now regrets visiting the clinic. Um, no kidding, dude.

However, this contradicts a statement Cervelli released on Twitter a couple of weeks ago: “Following my foot injury in March 2011,” he wrote in the statement. “I consulted with a number of experts, including Biogenesis Clinic, for legal ways to aid my rehab and recovery. I purchased supplements that I am certain were not prohibited by Major League Baseball.”

So did he leave Biogenesis with “supplements” or not?

Cervelli said he had never been offered illegal PEDs.

“Look at me,” he said, in reference to his build (6′1″, 210). “You check the numbers. I know it doesn’t matter, but if you check the numbers and everything, I don’t use that stuff.”

Hey, man… just because PEDs didn’t enhance your performance, doesn’t mean you didn’t take them. Just sayin…

Cervelli is in a battle this spring to win the starting catcher job, but you’d have to think this saga gives the edge to Chris Stewart and rookie Austin Romine.

Quick Hits

  • In a couple of months, you’ll be able to purchase the jersey Reggie Jackson was wearing on October 18, 1977 when he smoked three dingers in Game Six of the World Series. The jersey is expected to fetch at least half a million bucks, some of which will go to Jackson’s Mr. October Foundation for Kids. So, hey, kids… if you’re seeking an Easter gift idea for RotoRob, this is a fine choice.
  • The Indians continued their signing frenzy by inking Daisuke Matsuzaka to a minor league deal Wednesday. Elbow woes that necessitated Tommy John surgery limited him to just 18 starts combined over the past two seasons. He’s going to get a shot to win a rotation spot and he’s got a leg up given his relationship with new Cleveland Manager Terry Francona, who managed Dice-K in Beantown for a few years. If you’re looking for a very deep sleeper in AL-only leagues, we suppose Matsuzaka could be worth a shot, but we’re not jumping just yet — especially given that he’ll have to fight his way into a roster spot first.

“If they let these guys in ever — at any point — it’s a big black eye for the Hall and for baseball,” Gossage told AP. “It’s like telling our kids you can cheat, you can do whatever you want, and it’s not going to matter.”
