Cruz is one of 13 players expected to accept a 50-game suspension for his connection to the Biogenesis PED investigation today, Heyman adds.
ACES came under fire this past offseason and was investigated by Major League Baseball after another client, Melky Cabrera, was suspended 50 games for PED use. Cabrera and ACES employee Juan Carlos Nunez reportedly tried to cover up the scandal by purchasing Spanish-language web sites to advertise a fictitious product which Cabrera claimed he took, unbeknownst to the fact that it contained synthetic testosterone.
Cruz has hired Adam Katz of Wasserman Media Group, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports:
Nelson Cruz has hired WMG's Adam Katz as his agent, Y! Sports has learned. He fired the ACES agency, as @JonHeymanCBS first reported.
