ESPN.com is reporting that MLB is set to suspend 20 players including former Miami (FL) third baseman Ryan Braun and the namesake of the Hurricanes stadium in Alex Rodriguez for their connection to the Biogenesis of America clinic. Former Miami pitcher Cesar Carillo has already been hit with a suspension of 100 games in the minors in March but denied being connected to the clinic.
So you ask what does this have to do with College Baseball?
Former University of Miami Strength and Conditioning coach Jimmy Goins spent the last nine years with the team before being let go when the story broke this fall.
According to a report in the New York Times, Goins did the following:
Goins worked with both the baseball and track and field programs at Miami. He spent nine seasons with the Hurricanes’ baseball team.
According to a report in the Miami New Times Tuesday, his name appears on multiple client lists and “in one detailed page dated December 14, 2011, (Anthony) Bosch writes he’s selling him Anavar, testosterone, and a Winstrol/B-12 mix and charging him $400 a month. Another, from this past December, includes sales of HGH and testosterone.”
