The Tony Bosch Files: Nelson Cruz, Yasmani Grandal, Wayne Odesnik, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Yasmani Grandal, Jimmy Goins and Yuri Sucart's Records
On Monday, New Times released an investigation into Biogenesis, a local anti-aging firm run by Tony Bosch. Records obtained by New Times suggest Bosch was selling performance enhancing drugs to a number of professional athletes; throughout the week, we've been posting those records as they pertain to the nine athletes and one coach mentioned in our report.
Click through for the records linked to Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz, tennis pro Wayne Odesnik, boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa, San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal, minor league pitcher Cesar Carillo, UM strength and conditioning coach Jimmy Goins and Yuri Sucart, Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez's cousin.
Thus far, Rodriguez, Bosch, Odesnik, Cruz and Gonzalez have all issued statements denying New Times report into Biogenesis. For a full accounting of the records New Times obtained and the lengths we went to in order to confirm their veracity, read our post on Alex Rodriguez's files.

Another athlete already linked with performance-enhancing drugs listed in Bosch's records is tennis pro Wayne Odesnik.

Finally, Yuri Sucart regularly appears in Bosch's records. Sucart is notable because when Alex Rodriguez admitted in a 2009 interview that he had taken steroids from 2001-2003, Sucart -- his cousin who lives in South Miami -- was identified as the connection who provided the PEDs.
