First it was Yahoo Sports who reported the names of Milwaukee Brewers Ryan Braun and New York Yankees Francisco Cervelli.

The New York Daily News in a few hours later, identifying Jesus Montero of the Seattle Mariners.

Followed by SI’s Tom Verducci ousting the name of Detroit Tigers Jhonny Peralta.

Those are the latest names added to this ever-growing list of players found on the Miami-area clinic’s records of Anthony Bosch. Bosch is amidst of being accused of supplying performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) to a slew of MLB players.

Braun, who failed a PED test a year ago but got it dismissed on a technicality and Cervelli both confirmed their association with Bosch’s clinic and immediately issued statements.

Immediately after the news, both Braun and Cervelli admitted to have had an association with Bosch, but not for PEDs or anything illegal.

Braun’s statement:

“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. More specifically, he answered questions about [testosterone-to-epitestosterone] ratio and possibilities of tampering with samples. “I have nothing to hide and have never had any other relationship with Bosch.”

After speaking to Montero, Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times tweeted:

Since the Miami New Times blew the lid off this story over a week ago, the list keeps on growing and is now up to 12.

Updated PED scandal list as of 02/07/2013.

And this might just be the beginning, as the MNT has seems to be ripping off this band aide slowly, as it works in the small newspapers favor to stay in the relevant.

It has been confirmed by MNT that MLB has requested all documents related to this allegations but the paper hasn’t decided whether to turn over anything over yet.

This is not the way anybody wanted to start the 2013 season.
