Mike Carp says, "Ouch man."
He's just taking Luis Jimenez's spot.
Oh great A-Rod probably influenced him when he was a Yankee.More bad news for agents Seth and Sam Levinson: Their client, former Yankee catcher Jesus Montero, is named in records from a South Florida anti-aging clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs, the Daily News has learned.
Montero, a top prospect who was traded to the Mariners before last season, is just the latest client of ACES, the Levinson brothers’ Brooklyn-based sports agency, who has been linked to Biogenesis, the now-shuttered Coral Gables clinic operated by self-described “biochemist” Anthony Bosch.
The Levinson brothers have been under investigation by MLB since last summer, after another client, former Yankee Melky Cabrera, tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone.

I haven't seen anything about Jesus besides in this article. No other credible sources have said anything.
i think it all reads as shady clinics and media people working together to draw up stories to make money. Attach players who have been caught (melky and braun), with lesser known players a couple big names.

Montero is flat out denying everything about this... says doesnt know how his name is in discussion.. Has never bought anything from that lab, never been there etc etc.
Even on a positive test most guys go with the, "who me" approach.

That's cool. No risk there. I'm sure it's a minor league contract. I seriously doubt any of the big 3 make the team outta spring.
more bodies for the pile
