 NEW YORK (AP) -Jose Canseco, Lenny Dykstra, Glenallen Hill and Geronimo Berroa were accused of using steroids by former major league pitcher Jason Grimsley in a federal agent's affidavit unsealed Thursday.
Grimsley also accused Chuck Knoblauch of using human growth hormone; David Segui and Allen Watson of using performance-enhancing drugs; and Rafael Palmeiro and Pete Incaviglia of taking amphetamines, according to IRS Special Agent Jeff Novitzky's sworn statement.
All but Incaviglia, Berroa and Watson were mentioned last week in the Mitchell Report on doping in baseball.
Federal prosecutors on Thursday unsealed a May 2006 affidavit by Novitzky used to obtain a search warrant for Grimsley's home in Scottsdale, Ariz.
When the affidavit first was released in June 2006, players' names were blacked out. The Associated Press asked a federal magistrate judge to make the complete statement public, but the request was denied this July.
In October 2006, the Los Angeles Times reported the names of Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons were among those blacked out. Tejada's name was mentioned when Grimsley described a conversation he had with Orioles teammates Tejada, Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa about how they would play after baseball banned amphetamines.
Clemens, Pettitte, Roberts and Gibbons were not mentioned in the unsealed affidavit.
Pettitte and Jay Gibbons have admitted in recent weeks that they used human growth hormone, with the pitcher saying he used HGH twice in 2002 - three years before it was banned by baseball. Earlier this month, Gibbons was suspended for the first 15 days of next season.
Roberts admitted a single use of steroids in 2003, and Clemens has denied using any performance-enhancing drugs.
Just after the Los Angeles Times report, Kevin Ryan, then the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco, said the report contained ``significant inaccuracies.''
