Jose Guillen Allegedly Arranged for Shipment of HGH
Guillen allegedly made plans to acquire close to 50 pre-loaded syringes of HGH that would be sent to his San Francisco address in September, according to the Daily News. Citing a source close to the investigation, the paper reports that Drug Enforcement Administration agents intercepted a package that was sent from the suspected supplier to Guillen's wife.
This is not the first time Guillen has been linked to performance-enhancing drugs. He was set for a 15-game suspension to start the 2008 season, but was let off the hook when commissioner Bud Selig granted players amnesty for "past acts" when the Mitchell Report was released.
Before the start of the playoffs, Giants manager Bruce Bochy told FanHouse that Guillen's sore neck was the reason for keeping him off the roster. A Giants spokesman declined to comment on the story to FanHouse during Game 2 of the World Series.
