Bochy: No idea of Guillen investigation

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy says he decided to

leave Jose Guillen off the postseason roster before learning of the

outfielder’s alleged link to a federal investigation into shipments

of performance-enhancing drugs.

Speaking to reporters Saturday before Game 3 of the World

Series, Bochy reiterated that Guillen was not put on the roster for

the NL division series against Atlanta — or the rest of the

postseason — because of his troublesome neck. Bochy didn’t believe

Guillen was 100 percent and already had committed to go with Cody

Ross in right field.

The

New York Times reported on its website Thursday night,

citing several unidentified lawyers, that federal authorities told

Major League Baseball they were looking into shipments of human

growth hormone, allegedly sent to Guillen’s wife in the Bay

Area.
