Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun says he used the person who ran the Florida clinic now under investigation by Major League Baseball as a consultant on his drug suspension appeal last year and nothing more.
Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday that Braun's name showed up three times in records of the Biogenesis of America LLC clinic. Yahoo said no specific performance-enhancing drugs were listed next to the references to Braun.
The clinic allegedly provided banned substances to Alex Rodriguez and other athletes.
Braun says his name was in those records because of a dispute over payment to Anthony Bosch, who ran the now-closed anti-aging clinic.
In a statement to The Associated Press released by his representatives, Braun says he had no other relationship with Bosch and has nothing to hide.
