Jose Guillen Linked to HGH Shipment, Federal Investigation

San Francisco Giants outfielder, Jose Guillen, has been linked once again to performance enhancing drugs during a federal investigation. According to the New York Times, Guillen’s wife signed for a shipment of human growth hormone that was delivered by undercover agents after it was intercepted while en route from the Dominican Republic.

According to the Times’ sources, the Giants were "directed" to keep Guillen off of their postseason roster by Major League Baseball. The league reportedly learned of Guillen's involvement just days before the playoffs began. When playoff rosters were set, the team said Guillen was suffering from a sore neck.

This is not the first time Guillen has been linked to PED’s. In 2007 the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Guillen had purchased over $19 000 worth of HGH and anabolic steroids from 2002 to 2005 from the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center in Florida.

Guillen has been conspicuously absent from the Giants’ dugout during their playoff run. Other players who were left off the postseason roster, like Barry Zito, have been present, though Zito has been with the team much longer.

Both MLB and the Giants have refused comment so far though MLB has reportedly opened an investigation in to the matter.
