strosKISSIMMEE, FL – It could be a first strike for an Astros outfielder, and we’re not sure if he will get more swings.

According to an ESPN report, Fernando Martinez is one of five players linked to the Miami-area Biogenesis of America Clinic. AKA: he may have ties to a drug farm that doles out performance enhancers like lollipops. Alright, maybe it’s not quite like that.

Everth Cabrera of the Padres, Fautino de los Santos of the Padres, Jordan Norberto of Oakland and Cesar Puello of the Mets were also named in the report. They join the likes of Alex Rodriquez, Melky Cabrera and a few others previously tied to Anthony Bosch’s clinic.

So far there’s no comment from Martinez or the Astros.
