Daily Friar 2.20.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Well here we go again. Just when things were starting to settle out and we were coming to terms with Yasmani Grandal, two more Padres have appeared on a list from the same clinic. This time Everth Cabrera and Fautino De Los Santos are named in documents from the clinic that the MLB is investigating. Now this isn’t to say that Cabrera or De Los Santos necessarily used anything illegal. All that it means is that they may have been in contact with the clinic for a substance of some sort. I know that sounds bad, but there is one player (the name is escaping me right now) that was linked to the clinic, but he was only using something that isn’t banned by MLB. So maybe that is the case with our guys as well (minus Grandal). Cabrera has apologized this morning for the distraction this is causing and has said that he is cooperating with MLB and can’t comment any further because of that. Also Bud Black has said that he thinks that this will end positively, so there is all that to take as well. That bit of information is coming from Corey Brock via Twitter. All this information can be found in the first article below:
