PHOENIX (AP) -Bud Selig has no plans to read any of Barry Bonds' grand jury testimony that was ordered released by a judge just over a week ago.
``No, I don't think so,'' Selig said Saturday. ``I think all the lawyers around me will but I don't think there's any reason for me at this time.''
Bonds, the unemployed home run king, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice. The indictment accuses him of lying to a grand jury investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative's involvement in the distribution of steroids and other illegal performance-enhancing substances.
Bonds, who played 15 seasons with San Francisco, was not re-signed by the Giants after last season and has not been signed by another club. He has denied ever knowingly using steroids or other illegal performance enhancers.
Selig spoke during an informal meeting with reporters at Maryvale Baseball Park, where the Milwaukee Brewers, the team he once owned, played the Kansas City Royals.
Selig also said he hasn't decided what he will do about the 15-day suspension of Royals slugger Jose Guillen, and his review may not be complete before the regular season begins.
Last December, literally hours after Kansas City signed him to a three-year, $36 million contract, Guillen was suspended for 15 days for violation of baseball's drug policy.
He had been linked in media reports to the buying of thousands of dollars worth of human growth hormone. He appealed immediately and an arbitrator's decision is expected before the end of spring training.
``I haven't made any decisions on that yet,'' Selig said. ``We are working to finish off all of Sen. (George) Mitchell's recommendations, which will really tighten the program up and somehow I'm hoping one of these days that I can escape a press conference without any questions on this.''
Selig said that his wish is that when he finishes making his decisions on the Mitchell Report on drugs, that it will close discussion about it.
``I don't know,'' Selig said. ``I hope so.''
