Former Sox coach to run Boras facility

Via Ken Rosenthal comes this interesting story about Scott Boras.

The agent is going to open a gym in Miami for his clients so they will have a place to workout in the offseason and avoid personal trainers who could have connections to performance-enhancing drugs.

Alex Ochoa, the Red Sox’ first base coach last season, will run the facility. Boras already has a center in southern California.

One would think the MLB Players Association might consider a similar model. Or perhaps work with MLB to compile a list of approved trainers and/or facilities. There are clearly some players, such as Alex Rodriguez, who set out to cheat. But there seem to be some players who are misled by disreputable people posing an trainers.
