Grimsley also said former teammate Pete Incaviglia had a supply of amphetamines at his disposal and he described a conversation he had concerning the use of amphetamines with Sammy Sosa, Miguel Tejada and Rafael Palmeiro.

The affidavit also quoted Grimsley as saying David Segui had obtained human growth hormone, or HGH, from a doctor in Florida.

Grimsley said Segui told him, "If you are going to do this, you should do it right." Grimsley also said that he himself had obtained amphetamines, anabolic steroids and HGH.
