Chris Colabello has walked in Michael Chavis' shoes, and that's why he's buying what the Red Sox prospect is selling.
Colabello, a Milford native, was suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball in 2016 for the same performance-enhancing drug -- Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone -- Chavis was recently linked with, leading to the third baseman's suspension. And like Chavis, Colabello continues to maintain his innocence.
"One hundred percent," said the 34-year-old said when asked if he believed Chavis. "I know exactly what he's going through. There's not a question in my mind, and that's without having even spoken with him. Obviously, I could be proven wrong at some point. I know what I know. I know what I went through. So I have no reason to doubt he's not telling the truth."
