NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli says he consulted with Biogenesis of America LLC after a foot injury, but did not receive any treatment from the facility.
Cervelli said a recommendation to visit the clinic did not come from another player or an agent. He declined to name the person who gave the recommendation.
“I checked with doctors, people, and somebody recommended me to Biogenesis,” Cervelli said Wednesday before New York’s first spring training workout for pitchers and catchers. “I went there for, maybe, suggestions, and that’s it. I walked away with nothing. No (therapy). I just went there, talked, and that’s it.”
