(Newser) – Ex-first baseman David Segui preempted the Mitchell Report yesterday by announcing that he had dabbled in steroids during his playing days, reports the Baltimore Sun. Segui, whose 15-year MLB career began and ended with the Baltimore Orioles, refused to rat out the other users he knew of through contacts with his supplier, former Mets employee Kirk Radomski.

"I have nothing to hide. I have no problem talking about what I have done," Segui said. He went on to defend Radomski, saying that the trainer wasn't aiming to become a drug hub but just obtained MLB-banned substances as favors to friends. Segui had previously admitted to using (legally obtained) human growth hormones in 2006.
