Major League Baseball Players' Union head Michael Weiner said reporters shouldn't rush to conclusions regarding players' associations with a Florida clinic accused of supplying banned performance-enhancing drugs.
Weiner started his annual tour of the 30 spring training camps in New York Mets camp, and said that the league is still investigating Biogenesis of America, a defunct anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Fla.
"It's been a topic of discussion, and we've initiated conversation with guys throughout the offseason, even before the Miami issue came up," Weiner told reporters. "Appropriately so, there's a lot of discussion among players about what is the best drug treatment to have. Having said that, players understand that what's happening in Miami at this point remains to be seen in terms of fairness and judging things on the evidence. But there is a lot of talk in the clubhouse about where we should be on the Joint Drug Program, and that's a good thing."
