Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that there are still many unreleased names in the ongoing Biogenesis scandal, and that the mystery surrounding the identity of these players will likely be a story throughout the season's second half.
None of the unreleased players are believed to be big names or superstars, according to Passan, but that doesn't mean that the unknown names aren't significant. Any pending free agents, extension candidates or trade candidates could have their stock significantly altered by a connection to Biogenesis.
Passan adds that Major League Baseball has not yet finished interviewing players connected to the clinic, and as a result, any hopes for an expedited process appear unlikely. Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Everth Cabrera, Bartolo Colon and Jhonny Peralta are just some of the notable Major League players connected to the clinic thus far, and suspensions are sounding like an inevitable outcome. The date and length of those suspensions has yet to be determined, however.
