NEW YORK (AP) -Federal prosecutors are investigating whether a doctor illegally prescribed drugs for major league baseball players, The New York Times reported Wednesday, citing three lawyers who were briefed on the investigation.
Ramon Scruggs, a physician previously linked to major leaguers Troy Glaus and Scott Schoeneweis in media reports, is the target of the investigation by prosecutors in the Northern District of California, the newspaper reported.
Major League Baseball said it found insufficient evidence to discipline Glaus or Schoeneweis for drug violations after investigating the articles, which were cited in its Mitchell Report on doping in the sport.
One of the lawyers who spoke anonymously to the Times told the newspaper that the investigation has uncovered the names of other major league players who received prescriptions from Scruggs.
Scruggs has not been charged with any crimes in the investigation.
