Jose Guillen drug case: HGH was signed for by wife

4 Comments

With the investigation ongoing, some new details came to light Sunday.

A shipment of 50 pre-loaded syringes was sent to Jose Guillen’s house and signed for by his wife in September, a source close to the investigation told the New York Daily News.

According to the report, DEA agents, monitoring the activies of the alleged supplier, intercepted the package and delivered it to Guillen’s home, where his wife, Yamel Guillen, signed for it.   After the agents identified themselves, Yamel Guillen consented to the search of the package, which turned up the HGH-filled syringes.

The Daily News goes on to report that the DEA may be looking into a second incident in which HGH was also shipped to a San Francisco apartment or hotel address under Jose Guillen’s name.

The investigation figures to take a heavy toll on Guillen’s prospects this winter.  The free agent was also linked to HGH in the Mitchell Report, and the San Francisco Chronicle reported that he spent $19,000 on illegal drubs between 2002-05.  Now a borderline player, Guillen will have a tough time finding work with these latest allegations hanging over his head.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
