Baseball's back - with pitches tossed, fungoes tapped, sunflower seeds spit, and denials of performance-enhancing-drug use.
Washington Nationals righthander Gio Gonzalez arrived in Venice, Fla., dropped his bags, and said he was not on PEDs, despite his name's allegedly appearing on a list at a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables.
"I think that at the end of the day I've never taken performance-enhancing drugs, and I never will," the 27-year-old said.
In Peoria, Ariz., Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, whose name reportedly appeared in the clinic records, also denied involvement. He added that his brother, who has the same first and last name, had nothing to do with the clinic, either.
