Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez, who was named in a Miami New Times report as receiving performance-enhancing drugs from an anti-aging clinic, says tests for PEDs he was given by Major League Baseball have come back negative.

“Like I said before, I’ve never taken performance-enhancing drugs and I never will,” Gonzalez said Friday.

“Two days after the story broke, I was tested for blood and urine, and both came out negative, like I expected. Throughout my entire career, it’s been like that. I look forward to handling this with MLB and putting this behind me and looking forward to the season.”

Gonzalez didn't answer questions, citing MLB's ongoing investigation into Biogenesis of America LLC, the now-closed anti-aging clinic.
