NEW YORK (AP) -Jason Giambi failed an amphetamines test within the last year, the Daily News reported Wednesday.
The newspaper reported that with the failed amphetamines test, Giambi has been subjected to six additional tests for one year. The newspaper did not cite any sources in its report.
Giambi declined comment to the newspaper before the New York Yankees' 7-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
The Yankees slugger recently said in a USA Today interview that he was ``probably tested more than anybody else.''
Before the failed test, lawyers for the commissioner's office and the players' association held more conversations Tuesday on a possible meeting with Giambi but it remained uncertain when or if such a gathering would take place.
Lawyers for Major League Baseball would like to talk to Giambi about comments in last Friday's editions of USA Today.
``I was wrong for doing that stuff,'' the New York Yankees designated hitter was quoted as saying, remarks some have interpreted as an admission of steroids use.
Management lawyers would like to hold the meeting as soon as is practicable. The failed amphetamines test most likely wouldn't be discussed at a meeting since MLB policy is to keep a first positive test secret.
Hall of Famer Frank Robinson took issue with one of Giambi's comments.
``What we should have done a long time ago was stand up - players, ownership, everybody - and said: 'We made a mistake,''' Giambi was quoted as saying. ``We should have apologized back then and made sure we had a rule in place and gone forward. ... Steroids and all of that was a part of history. But it was a topic that everybody wanted to avoid. Nobody wanted to talk about it.''
Robinson said Giambi should speak for himself.
y in baseball.''
Before the Yankees played Boston on Tuesday night, Giambi was asked about a report in the New York Post that said the Los Angeles Angels had an interest in acquiring him. Giambi has a full no-trade clause.
``This is all news to me. I'm a Yankee,'' he said. ``It's kind of fun to read. I never asked for it.''
