It Could Be a While Before More Biogenesis Names Come Out, Could Be “Fairly Significant” Players

MLB News and Rumors

steroids needle syringeYesterday, ESPN/OTL reported – almost as an aside to a larger Tony Bosch story – that there are likely to be additional MLB players implicated in the Biogenesis PED scandal that led to numerous suspensions last year.

The names may not come out for a little while, however, as they are not yet known to reporters, and will instead likely be included in discovery documents in the Bosch (and others who have been arrested) proceedings. If the names aren’t uncovered before then, in my estimation, we’re probably looking at a few months before that level of discovery occurs.

One of the authors of yesterday’s piece, T.J. Quinn, adds an interesting wrinkle to the identities and volume of MLB players involved:


So, then. We’re not looking at a huge number of players (which could be how they slipped through the cracks the first time around), and probably not Ryan-Braun-level superstars. But “fairly significant” players who aren’t borderline minor leaguers, to me, indicates that these are established guys whose names we would all know.

It may yet be a while before we see the players identified, so this will be a small cloud hanging over the game for some time yet.
