Cruz shocked name linked to Fla. clinic, PEDs

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz says it was "shocking" and "depressing" when his name came up in connection to a clinic now at the center of Major League Baseball's latest drug investigation.

MLB is investigating Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Fla. The Miami New Times reported last month that it obtained records detailing drug purchases several players, including Cruz, the 2011 AL championship series MVP.

Cruz spoke to the media Friday at spring training in Surprize, Ariz., his first public comments since the story broke. He said he would like to say more, but did not do so because of the MLB investigation.

Cruz hit .263 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs last season in 124 games.
