WASHINGTON -- CSNWashington.com reported Wednesday that Nationals pitcher Livan Hernandez is "reportedly the subject of a federal investigation involving money laundering for Angel Ayala Vazquez, a convicted drug trafficker in Puerto Rico."
A Nationals spokesman said that they "are aware of, and continue to monitor, the situation as it pertains to the Angel Manuel Ayala trial."
The spokesman said Hernandez will not be making any comment.
CSN said that a report on El Vocero, a Puerto Rican news site, said that Hernandez is one of a number of celebrities being investigated and possibly in line for charges of money laundering and bank fraud.
That report also said that Hernandez testified to a grand jury on this case two years ago. In addition, the report said that Hernandez was brought up by different witnesses as someone involved in what Vazquez did.
