 NEW YORK (AP) -Lawyers for Jason Giambi and Major League Baseball spent Tuesday trying to put together an agreement that would lead to a meeting between the New York Yankees star and steroids investigator George Mitchell.
While several people on the periphery of the talks said the sides appeared to be moving toward a deal before Thursday's deadline, negotiations were still taking place Tuesday evening.
Talks began last week and media coverage has slowed the process, a person with knowledge of the discussions said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no public statements were being made. That could be an indication one side - or both - is trying to push for a more advantageous deal.
Thursday's deadline is only for an agreement to meet, not for the actual session to take place.
Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said June 6 that he wanted a Giambi-Mitchell meeting to take place within two weeks. Selig threatened Giambi with discipline, saying the level of cooperation with Mitchell would be factored into his decision.
Giambi would be the first active player known to meet with Mitchell since the investigation began in March 2006. Giambi was quoted last month by USA Today as seeming to admit to steroids use. Giambi then met with baseball lawyers to discuss those remarks.
Giambi is on the disabled list with a foot injury and it is unclear when he'll be able to play again.
