ESPN is reporting that a source has told them that [tag]Roger Clemens[/tag] will be named in the MLB steroid investigation headed up by former US Senator George Mitchell. Former Yankees trainer Brian McNamee reportedly provided information to the investigation on Clemens, Andy Pettitte, and several other big name Yankees.

From ESPN…

A former New York Yankees strength trainer says information he provided to the George Mitchell investigation regarding supplying Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte with steroids is included in the Mitchell report scheduled to be released later today, a source close to the trainer told ESPN The Magazine’s Shaun Assael.

Brian McNamee, who worked for the Yankees and as a personal trainer for Clemens and Pettitte, also told investigators that on at least one occasion, Clemens was in possession of steroids from another supplier, the source said.

The source said McNamee told investigators he supplied Clemens with steroids while Clemens was with the Yankees, and prior to Clemens joining the team.

The rumors aren’t new but this is certainly disappointing news. We’ll have more reaction when all the details of the Mitchell report are released this afternoon.

Update: As had been rumored Clemens’ name was in fact in the report. The trainer McNamee claims that he personally injected Clemens, Pettitte, and former Aggie Chuck Knoblauch. Through his lawyer Clemens denied ever using steroids or human growth hormone, but Pettitte admitted to using HGH in 2002 to recover from an arm injury. (12/15/2007)
