Nationals | Gio Gonzalez passes drug test

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez reportedly passed the drug test that the league gave to him in late January. "Like I said before, I've never taken performance-enhancing drugs and I never will," Gonzalez said. "Two days after the story broke, I was tested for blood and urine, and both came out negative, like I expected. Throughout my entire career, it's been like that. I look forward to handling this with MLB and putting this behind me and looking forward to the season." However, the league hasn't completely absolved Gonzalez and they don't require a positive drug test to suspend a player.
