Sports log: Brewers’ Ryan Braun consulted with clinic

BASEBALL

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun says he used the person who ran the Florida clinic now under investigation by Major League Baseball as a consultant on his drug suspension appeal last year and nothing more. Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday that Braun’s name showed up three times in records of the Biogenesis of America LLC clinic in Coral Gables, Fla. Yahoo said no specific performance-enhancing drugs were listed next to the references to Braun. The clinic allegedly provided banned substances to Alex Rodriguez and other athletes. Braun says his name was in those records because of a dispute over payment to Anthony Bosch, who ran the now-closed anti-aging clinic. In a statement to the Associated Press released by his representatives, Braun says he had no other relationship with Bosch and has nothing to hide . . . MLB officials asked the Miami New Times for records the alternative newspaper obtained for its story on alleged use of banned substances by several players. New Times editor Chuck Strouse said Tuesday the paper had not yet decided how to respond. Strouse described the MLB move as a request and noted that the league does not have subpoena power. The paper reported last week that the Yankees’ Rodriguez and other players bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances between 2009 and 2012 from the now-closed Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic.
