PHOENIX (AP) -A federal magistrate Friday rejected a request by The Associated Press to reveal the names of players allegedly implicated in drug use by former major league pitcher Jason Grimsley.
``Disclosure at this time may compromise the ongoing investigation in several ways,'' U.S. Magistrate Edward C. Voss wrote.
The AP's application was opposed by the U.S. attorney's office for Northern California, which is conducting the investigation, and by the major league players' association.
