Ugh.

Two more Padres including shortstop Everth Cabrera are now being listed among 25 other MLB players linked to a Florida PED clinic.

Documents list Cabrera as a client and records show that he was to receive shipments of Performance Enhancing Drugs. Padres reliever Fautino De Los Santos is also on the list. This is the same clinic that Yasmani Grandal was linked to a few weeks ago.

I wonder if signing up for PEDs through the mail is anything like ordering CDs in the 90's from BMG. You get 10-for-1 and then they nail you with the shipping & handling and the pricey monthly album if you don't quit immediately. If only Cabrera would have remembered to cancel his subscription after Grandal was caught.

The new players listed in documents from the Biogenesis of America clinic run by Anthony Bosch: San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, 26, the reigning National League stolen base champion; Jordan Norberto, 26, a lefty reliever with the Oakland A's; Fernando Martinez, 24, a Houston Astros outfielder; Fautino De Los Santos, 27, a reliever claimed off waivers by the Padres, and Cesar Puello, 21, a top Mets outfield prospect.

Sources said the players, like those who have been named in previous Biogenesis documents, were on a list as having received performance-enhancing drugs, although the documents are not proof that the players either received or used PEDs.

"I’m processing the information as I get it," Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said Tuesday night. "We’re going to try to connect with their agents and get more information. Right now, I don’t know more than anyone else."
