Former Dodgers

  • Radomski alleges that Paul Lo Duca purchased steroids on Gagne's behalf and recalls having direct contact with him just once, at which time they reportedly spoke about how to get the air out of a syringe. According to the Mitchell Report, the Red Sox had internal discussions about Gagne's past steroid usage before acquiring him in 2007, including an e-mail from general manager Theo Epstein that read: "Have you done any digging on Gagne? I know the Dodgers think he was a steroid guy."
  • Radomski produced three checks of $3,200 each, supposedly for human growth hormone, and a hand-written note from Lo Duca. The Mitchell Report also has an internal note from the Dodgers in Oct. 2003 claiming Lo Duca "got off the steroids" and should probably be considered trade bait. He ended up being sent to the Marlins just before the 2004 trade deadline.
  • Radomski alleges that Herges was referred to him by former teammate Paul Lo Duca. Former Albuquerque Dukes strength and conditioning coach Todd Seyler said that Herges and Lo Duca purchased and used steroids while teammates in the minor leagues. Seyler said that teammates also used steroids that were purchased by Lo Duca and Herges, specifically siting an incident in which five players injected themselves prior to a game in 1999.
