MLB rumors: Son of Yankees great makes wild PED claim about Angels slugger and N.J. native Mike Trout – NJ.com

Could MLB have yet ANOTHER scandal in the works? If so, this one would be a whopper.

NBC Sports Northwest reports David Brosius, son of former New York Yankees third baseman Scott Brosius, is accusing Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout of taking human growth hormone, which is an illegal performance-enhancing drug in baseball.

The report cites now-deleted comments by David Brosius on Instagram, which came in the wake of the illegal sign-stealing saga ripping through MLB.

If you want to read something better, Mike Trout takes HGH for a thyroid condition, Brosius wrote on Instagram. Its a loophole he found and the MLB doesnt make it public because they dont want fans knowing their best player is on HGH. But people within know...

However, Brosius walked back his accusation on Friday with a follow-up post on Instagram.

Id like to clear the air about a comment made earlier this week about Mike Trout potentially using HGH. The statement in question was taken from a conversation where I was explaining how there are certain situations in which actions that would usually be against the rules and considered cheating, are deemed okay for medical or other reasons, thus not cheating. The example I used of Mike Trout does not stem from information from my Dad or sources within the MLB and has no evidence behind it. I had no intention of this becoming an accusation against Mike Trout or causing the uproar it did. Mike Trout has been the face of MLB for good reason, as he is an amazing player and even better example for baseball players like myself. I would like to sincerely apologize to him and his family for the unfair statement I made and the negative fallout it has had on them. No criticism or skepticism should be pointed at him, it should all be at me. I had a lapse in judgment when posting the comment and have learned my lesson on how powerful and dangerous social media can be.

Trout, a native of Millville, N.J., is universally regarded as the best player in baseball. He has never faced any PED accusations and has no failed drug tests to his record. The 28-year-old Trout won the 2019 American League MVP Award after hitting a career-best 45 home runs. It was Trouts third MVP award. Hes also finished second in MVP voting four times.

Trout is an eight-time All-Star whos on his way to having a no-doubt, slam-dunk Hall of Fame career. Last winter, he signed a mammoth 12-year, $430 million contract with the Angels.

As for Scott Brosius, Yankees fans will remember him as a leader on the clubs which won three straight World Series titles from 1998-2000. Brosius was World Series MVP in 1998, when he hit .471 with 2 home runs in a four-game sweep of the San Diego Padres.

Scotts son David is a left-hand pitcher who spent one season at Oregon State before transferring to Linfield College in Oregon.
