Investigators for MLB have struck out again in seeking cooperation from a Toronto-based sports doctor, as well as his former assistant, who previously injected pro athletes with HGH and other banned substances.
Mary Anne Catalano, the former lead assistant to a Canadian doctor accused of treating professional athletes with performance-enhancing drugs, avoided jail time as expected and was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation.
Anthony Galea, a Toronto-based doctor accused of injecting U.S. professional athletes with HGH and other substances, is expected to enter a guilty plea at a hearing Wednesday in federal district court in Buffalo, ESPN.com has learned.
The former assistant to a Toronto doctor accused of injecting pro athletes with healing substances, including human growth hormone, isn't likely to cooperate with potential investigations by the athletes' pro sports leagues.
Anthony Galea frantically crisscrossed the country last summer and injected U.S. professional athletes with human growth hormone and other substances, according to legal documents ESPN has obtained from a Canadian court.
The attorney for Canadian sports physician Dr. Anthony Galea is encouraged by the recent string of denials from top professional athletes that his client incorporated human growth hormone as part of their treatment in healing from injuries.
Convicted steroid distributor Kirk Radomski told ESPN.com that while he was moving a broken television off a dresser, he found a shipping receipt for human growth hormone that he claims to have sent to Roger Clemens' Houston home in 2002 or 2003.
