(Newser) – Three more baseball players, including outfielder Jose Guillen and retired third baseman Matt Williams, have been named as buying steroids from a Florida anti-aging clinic that has since been raided for suspected illegal drug sales, the San Francisco Chronicle reports, citing records. Prescriptions at the clinic were written by a local dentist whose license was eventually revoked, but the athletes have not admitted wrongdoing.

Guillen, who spent $19,000 at the clinic and had shipments sent to the Oakland Coliseum, has spoken out in the past against steroid use, saying, “You're ruining your whole career.” Williams spent $11,600; he says he sought the drugs on a doctor's advice but was unaware of the prescriber’s identity. No athletes have been indicted in the drug sales busts; the Indians' Paul Byrd was the last player implicated in the ongoing Florida investigation.
