 NEW YORK (AP) -Baltimore Orioles outfielder Jay Gibbons joined the list of players asked to meet with baseball officials after being linked to a Florida pharmacy that distributed prescription performance-enhancing drugs.
A day after SI.com reported Gibbons received steroids and human growth hormone from Signature Pharmacy after both substances were banned, baseball requested a meeting with the Orioles outfielder.
No timetable was set for the meeting, a person familiar with the situation said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made.
On Friday, baseball asked to meet with St. Louis' Rick Ankiel and Toronto's Troy Glaus after reports that they received performance-enhancing drugs from Signature Pharmacy several years ago.
Gibbons got six shipments of Genotropin (a brand name for synthetic human growth hormone), two shipments of testosterone and two shipments of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) from October 2003 and July 2005, SI.com said, citing a Florida source with knowledge of a Signature Pharmacy client list.
SI.com said its information dealt only with receipt of the drugs, not use.
Gibbons and his agent, Sam Levinson, have not returned telephone messages.
