Former A's left-hander Gio Gonzalez arrived at spring training with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday in Viera, Fla., and maintained he has not used performance-enhancing drugs.
The Miami New Times reported last month that Gonzalez was among a half-dozen major league players listed as receiving PEDs in purported records of Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Fla. Gonzalez hopes to be exonerated.
"I feel very confident," Gonzalez said. "I think that at the end of the day I've never taken performance-enhancing drugs, and I never will."
Gonzalez, a 21-game winner last year, denied the allegations on Twitter on the day they were reported.
He said he had been contacted by Major League Baseball officials and has cooperated with their investigation.
