DUNEDIN, Fla. —
HGH testing began last year but was limited to spring training.
Also, Weiner says he will be speaking with the players who were named in a report by The Miami New Times as having allegedly purchased performance-enhancing drugs from a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic.
“Whether there’s anything to these stories or not, they’re (the players) sick of this issue,” Weiner said. “So, it’s natural for a lot of guys to say, maybe we need different penalties. We’ll have that discussion over the course of 2013.”
Weiner succeeded Donald Fehr as union head in 2009, and this tour is his first of spring training since announcing in August he is being treated for a brain tumor.
