    Major League Baseball is investigating Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova and minor league hurler Wilkin De La Rosa for allegedly injecting each other with B-12 shots last season when they were teammates in Trenton (Double-A), The Post has learned.

    Though B-12 isn’t on the list of baseball’s banned substances, only licensed physicians are allowed to inject medication. And MLB wants to make sure that the shots were indeed B-12.

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman said he was unaware of the investigation, and MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said, “We don’t discuss the work of our investigative group.’’

    Teammates injecting teammates. Never a good idea…

      I’m not 100% sure, but I don’t think you need a physician to give b12 shots.

      Hey, B-12, it’s a gateway PED. ;-)
