Street notified he might be questioned
TUCSON, Ariz. -- Colorado Rockies closer Huston Street says he has been notified that federal investigators might want to talk to him about a Canadian doctor being investigated in probes involving HGH and another drug.
Street says he was told by his agents that he "might be interviewed by the U.S. attorney's office regarding the case or by the commissioner's office or both."
Street says he visited Dr. Anthony Galea in Toronto in 2007 and 2008 while the right-hander was playing for the Oakland Athletics. He was looking for help with an irritated nerve in his elbow and then problems with his hip and quadriceps. Street says he received oxygen therapy from Galea but most of the treatment he got was chiropractic.
Galea was arrested in Canada last October on four charges relating to an unapproved substance called Actovegin.
