NEW YORK – Roger Clemens' lawyer says the pitcher was not among the more than 100 players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.
Rusty Hardin tells The New York Times that Clemens obtained the results from the drug-testing company and provided them to Congress before his 2008 testimony by waiving his right to keep them private.
The results would not affect a federal grand jury's investigation into whether Clemens should be indicted for perjury. Clemens disputed former trainer Brian McNamee's claims that he injected the pitcher with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 to 2001. McNamee made no assertions about 2003, and HGH was not tested for them.
Players were anonymously tested in 2003 with no penalties. Hardin said he was revealing the results now because other players recently have been linked to the list.
