MLB | Segui using HGH legally

Former MLB 1B/OF David Segui said on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that he used the drug HGH legally, with a doctor's prescription, because of a growth hormone deficiency in his body, and was among the players RP Jason Grimsley mentioned to federal investigators, according to the Associated Press. Segui, who retired after the 2004 season, says he continues to use HGH, after the deficiency was found when he went for blood work before surgery during his playing career. Segui said Grimsley approached him in the offseason, and asked him for advice on how HGH could help him recover from major arm surgery. Grimsley was waived by the Arizona Diamondbacks this month after acknowledging HGH use, and accusing other players of its use in a statement to federal agents. The names of other players mentioned by Grimsley have not yet been made public.
