(Newser) – Admitted drug dealer Kirk Radomski has turned over to federal authorities proof that he mailed human growth hormone to Roger Clemens, the New York Daily News reports. Sources claim Radomski has shipping receipts for HGH kits mailed to Clemens’ Texas mansion. The former Yankees and Houston Astros pitcher is under investigation for charges of perjury after denying steroid use before Congress.

Dates on the slips sent by former Mets employee Radomski allegedly coincide with instances during which Clemens’ wife injected herself with HGH to prepare for a Sports Illustrated photo shoot. Clemens continues to deny the allegations: "I can't imagine that there's any truth to that at all," said his lawyer. "We'll find out one day Roger never received or took the stuff."
