Jordan Norberto is among five players who have been linked to a Miami clinic that sold PEDs to athletes, a source has told ESPN.

The Miami New Times reported earlier that the clinic provided drugs to prominent MLB players such as Alex Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez, and Melky Cabrera.

Norberto, who apparently paid $2,000 a month to the clinic for PEDs, went 4-1 with a 2.77 ERA in 39 games with the A’s last season before suffering from shoulder tendinitis in August, which shut him down for the rest of the season.

Neither the A’s nor Norberto’s agency has commented on the situation.
