MLBPA head: don't jump to conclusions on PEDs

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Baseball union head Michael Weiner said reporters should refrain from jumping to conclusions about media reports linking players to a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs.

Weiner cautioned that MLB is still investigating Biogenesis of America in Coral Gables.

After his one-hour session with the Mets, Weiner also discussed the agreement with management last month to extend blood testing for human growth hormone into the regular season. HGH testing began last year but was limited to spring training.

Now the World Anti-Doping Agency laboratory in Laval, Quebec, will keep records of each player, including his baseline ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone.
