(Newser) – Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte are among the 50 or so baseball players named in George Mitchell's much-anticipated report on steroids in Major League Baseball, ESPN reports. A Yankees strength trainer told investigators, whose report is due today, that the two pitchers were among players he supplied with steroids, a source tells ESPN. "Several" prominent Yankees will be named, reports the Bergen Record, citing a baseball official.

Brian McNamee, who worked as a personal trainer for Clemens and Pettitte as well as the Yankees, testified that Clemens also procured steroids from another supplier, the source told ESPN. "It's going to be a rough day in the Bronx" the official familiar with the contents of the report told the Record.
