(Newser) – The Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center has filed suit to seal the results of a sweeping probe into its operations, an investigation in which 10 individuals have already pleaded guilty to abetting illegal prescription drug distribution. Leaks from the case have implicated several baseball players as customers,  including Indians pitcher Paul Byrd and Mariners outfielder Jose Guillen.

In February, Guillen claimed never to have used steroids, announcing to ESPN magazine, "That is something I never considered in my life ... You're ruining your whole career. You're ruining your reputation." The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Guillen bought products from the clinic between May 2002 and June 2005. The Center's motion to seal was filed late last month.
