Breaking Report: Gio Gonzalez Did Not Receive PEDs From Biogenesis

As reported by ESPN earlier today, it appears that Nats ace Gio Gonzalez did not receive any illegal performance-enhancing drugs from the Miami-area sports medicine clinic Biogenesis. Earlier reports had linked Gonzalez to the business, which was known to be a dealer of PEDs.

The news is quite welcome for the embattled Gonzalez, who has been peppered by PED questions and accusations since spring training began. With this revelation, it appears the spotlight will shift off of him, and allow him to prepare for the World Baseball Classic and upcoming season in peace.
