A FBI informant wore a wire while speaking with a Baltimore Orioles outfielder, helping fuel the federal government's steroid investigation that eventually led to the Mitchell report, according to a report on The Smoking Gun.
The FBI has opened a preliminary investigation into whether baseball All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada lied to federal authorities when he denied taking steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs, The Associated Press has learned.
Congress is asking the Justice Department to investigate whether former AL MVP Miguel Tejada lied in 2005 to committee staff when he was interviewed in connection with the Rafael Palmeiro steroids case, The Associated Press learned Tuesday.
A federal judge gave permission for The Associated Press to argue that names should be revealed from a search warrant in which former major league pitcher Jason Grimsley allegedly implicated players in steroids use.
Rafael Palmeiro gave his first public explanation of his failed drug test Wednesday, on the eve of a congressional report on whether the former Baltimore Orioles slugger lied under oath when he denied using steroids.
