MLB roundup: Cano's representative being investigated

The Sports Xchange

Major League Baseball is investigating New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano for potentially having ties to controversial South Florida clinic Biogenesis, ESPN reported Monday.

Sonia Cruz, a spokeswoman for Cano's foundation, is listed as being a Biogenesis customer last summer.

Outfielder Melky Cabrera and teammate Alex Rodriguez, friends of Cano, are also being investigation for connections with the clinic.

"It doesn't have anything to do with me," Cano told reporters Monday. "I know what I'm doing and I know myself. I'm going to play my game. I didn't see what the story said but I have no comment."

Cano said that Cruz is still a spokeswoman for his foundation.

The Miami-based clinic is suspected of providing performance-enhancing drugs to major league players.
