Braun: ‘Nothing to hide’ in link to Miami clinic

Don’t look down…the rest of the list.

Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun said he had “nothing to hide” Tuesday after being drawn into the controversy surrounding the defunct South Florida clinic that allegedly supplied performance-enhancing drugs to several Major League players.

Braun’s name appears three times in records obtained by Yahoo! Sports from a former employee of Biogenesis, the anti-aging clinic led by Tony Bosch that sits at the center of the scandal. Within hours, Braun, who last winter successfully appealed a positive test for elevated testosterone on a technicality related to the way his test sample was handled, released a statement explaining the link.

“During the course of preparing for my successful appeal last year, my attorneys, who were previously familiar with Tony Bosch, used him as a consultant,” Braun said. “More specifically, he answered questions about T/E [testosterone to epitestosterone] ratio and possibilities of tampering with samples.

“There was a dispute over compensation for Bosch’s work, which is why my lawyer and I are listed under ‘moneys owed’ and not on any other list. I have nothing to hide and have never had any other relationship with Bosch. I will fully cooperate with any inquiry into this matter.”
