Baseball: Washington Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez passed the drug test Major League Baseball administered to him in late January, Gonzalez said. The MLB Players Association informed Gonzalez on Friday that the tests on his blood and urine had returned negative, Gonzalez said. On Jan. 31, two days after a report in the Miami New Times connected him to performance-enhancing drugs purchased from the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, MLB sent investigators to his home to drug test him.
