Committee has no comment on Gio Gonzalez's involvement with Biogenesis
Warren Spahn Award winner's name has been linked to an anti-aging clinic under investigation for providing performance-enhancing drugs to athletes, but the Nationals lefty denies using PEDs and has never tested positive.
If evidence surfaced that Warren Spahn winner Gio Gonzalez has taken banned substances, what would the Jim Thorpe committee do with the award given annually to the top left-hander in Major League Baseball?

“Talking to some of our board members nothing has changed,” said Jim Thorpe executive director Eddie Griffin. “We can't really comment. It's status quo.”
Gonzalez, Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and at least four other players with ties to the University of Miami have been cited in documents from an anti-aging clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball for possibly providing players with performance-enhancing drugs.
The documents include billing and medical records that several players received PEDs from clinic director Anthony Bosch. The medical records were published last week by the Miami New Times, which said it obtained the documents from a former employee of the clinic, Biogenesis.
Gonzalez, the Washington Nationals pitcher who accepted the Warren Spahn Award last month in Oklahoma City, has denied using performance-enhancing drugs and has never been suspended for testing positive. His father, Max, said he consulted Bosch in hopes of losing weight.
