Adrian Beltre doesn’t know why his former Los Angeles Dodgers teammate Eric Gagne didn’t produce names in his upcoming autobiography.
In the French-language book, “Game Over: The Story of Eric Gagne,” he alleges 80 percent of his Dodgers teammates used performance-enhancing drugs, according to a report on ESPN.com.
“He should have mentioned names,” Beltre said on Wednesday. “I don’t know what you want me to tell you. I know for sure that I’m not one of them. ... For [Gagne] to say something like that, he should have come out with names instead of a percentage."
Beltre added that he has no interest in reading the book. Beltre and Gagne were teammates with the Dodgers from 1999-2004.
Gagne, the 2003 National League Cy Young winner, admitted using human growth hormone during his playing career in 2010. He was first linked to steroid use in the Mitchell Report, released in late 2007.-- Drew Davison
