MLB investigating Nova, DeLaRosa


Via Baseball America, Major League Baseball is investigating both Ivan Nova and Wilkin DeLaRosa for allegedly injecting each other with B-12 shots while the two were teammates last season with Double-A Trenton. B-12 is not on MLB’s list of banned substances, but only licensed physicians are allowed to inject the medication without a subscription. And, of course, they want to make sure neither player injected themselves with something other than B-12.

I honestly don’t know what happens from here, if there’s a penalty or something since it’s not a banned substance. Hopefully nothing comes of this.

    Lovely. Just put the syringes away kids.

  2. Ross in Jersey says:

    Needless to say but.. now would be a really bad time for Nova to get suspended. If he’s going to get suspended at all.

  3. Chris says:

    Hmmm… based on the results it looks like Nova got the good stuff and DeLaRosa not so much.

  4. Johan Iz My Brohan says:

    Can WLDR take a double-penalty/fine and leave Nova free of any of the consequences?

    If anything, I’d say there is a fine.

    How does MLB even hear about this

  6. Yank the Frank says:

    I can hear the chants now “B-12, B-12″

  7. Poopy Pants says:

    More proof that Nova is a real classy guy.

  8. Dehy Dre says:

    too cheap to renew their subscriptions, eh?

  9. Poopy Pants says:

    Allegations of Nova banging Mindy McCready in 3…2…1…

  10. WTF? One of the few pure vitamins with no known side affects, available as tablet, pill or powder over-the-counter without a prescription in any supermarket or drug store, supposedly requires a prescription for the liquid form? Oh Brave New World!!!
    This is definitely from a new Monty Python episode, right?

  11. FIPster Doofus says:

    I wonder if this increases the likelihood of Cash putting a claim in on Kuroda.

  12. GermanYankee says:

    Seems like Nova and de la Rosa are idiots. What else can you say about people that inject each other shit like that. I hope they can be suspended even though B-12 isn’t on the banned list. They’d deserve that.

    B-12 is a vitamin that you can buy in any walmart, target, mall, and grocery store. It’s found in foods such as liver, eggs, energy bars, and countless others. He probably shoudn’t have been using needles but B12 is as necessary and harmless to the body as Vitamin C, and Calcium. Don’t worry the MLB can’t do anything for a legal and harmless vitamin that poses no advantage to a ball player (unless you count intestinal health, or the health for unborn children and their mothers).

    Poopy Pants: get a new screen name.

  16. DallasGreen says:

    they are stupid kids and should be bitch-slapped a fine by the team for just that reason..

  17. Tank Foster says:

    I think if they were willing to weild syringes and needles, the promise must have been for something more than B12. Nice try…..
