San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is among five players whose names are listed in the records of a Florida clinic at the center of a Major League Baseball investigation into illegal drugs, ESPN reported Tuesday.


The report said Cabrera, who led the NL in stolen bases last season, was listed along with Padres reliever Fautino De Los Santos, Oakland reliever Jordan Norberto, Houston outfielder Fernando Martinez and New York Mets outfield prospect Cesar Puello.


The Biogenesis of America clinic run by Anthony Bosch in Coral Gables is now closed. The facility allegedly provided performance-enhancing substances to several players, including Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera and Nelson Cruz. The players have said they didn't get illegal drugs from the clinic.


The Padres and Mets declined comment on the report. Everth Cabrera and Melky Cabrera are not related.


ESPN reported that sources said the five additional names were on a list from the clinic as having gotten PEDs. The documents don't prove the players were provided drugs or used them.


Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez was previously reported as having been listed on Biogenesis documents. He denied the report. ESPN said Tuesday that two sources said Gonzalez didn't get illegal substances from Bosch or the clinic. The name of Milwaukee slugger Ryan Braun has also been listed in the clinic's records. Braun said he used Bosch as a consultant.
