WASHINGTON (AP) -Former Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch agreed Monday to talk to a House committee investigating drug use in baseball, and the session was postponed until later this week.
The committee issued a subpoena for Knoblauch last week after he failed to respond to an invitation to testify. Knoblauch originally was to give a deposition Jan. 24, a session that was postponed until Tuesday. Under the new schedule, Knoblauch will give a deposition or transcribed interview Friday.
``We are pleased that Mr. Knoblauch has agreed to voluntarily participate in a transcribed interview or deposition with the committee. As a result, the Committee is withdrawing the subpoena,'' House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Henry Waxman and ranking Republican Tom Davis said in a statement.
The appearance is in preparation for a Feb. 13 hearing, which is to include Knoblauch, Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte. Also scheduled to testify are Brian McNamee, the former personal trainer for Clemens and Pettitte, and former Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski.
Pettitte is slated to appear for a deposition or transcribed interview on Wednesday, followed by Clemens on Feb. 5 and McNamee on Feb. 7. A time has not yet been set for Radomski.
