WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Attorneys for baseball steroids investigation linchpin Brian McNamee reportedly will deliver one high and inside to pitcher Roger Clemens Thursday.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that a lawyer familiar with the situation said McNamee possessed syringes used to inject Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone and still holding traces of Clemens' blood.

McNamee's attorneys told the Times Clemens' former trainer will present congressional investigators "corroborative physical evidence" he injected performance-enhancing substances into the longtime, high-caliber pitcher who pitched for the New York Yankees last season.

McNamee, who is to give a deposition Thursday to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, has claimed to have administered Clemens with illegal performance enhancers from 1998 to 2001. McNamee's attorneys said they will make that evidence publicly afterward.

Clemens, who appeared before the panel Tuesday, has repeatedly denied using steroids or human-growth hormone.

"This will totally corroborate that Brian has been telling the truth from the beginning," Ed Ward, McNamee's lead lawyer, told the Times in a telephone interview. "It takes it out of the category of he-said, he-said."
