With the investigation ongoing, some new details came to light Sunday.

A shipment of 50 pre-loaded syringes was sent to Jose Guillen’s house and signed for by his wife in September, a source close to the investigation told the New York Daily News.

According to the report, DEA agents, monitoring the activies of the alleged supplier, intercepted the package and delivered it to Guillen’s home, where his wife, Yamel Guillen, signed for it.   After the agents identified themselves, Yamel Guillen consented to the search of the package, which turned up the HGH-filled syringes.

The Daily News goes on to report that the DEA may be looking into a second incident in which HGH was also shipped to a San Francisco apartment or hotel address under Jose Guillen’s name.

The investigation figures to take a heavy toll on Guillen’s prospects this winter.  The free agent was also linked to HGH in the Mitchell Report, and the San Francisco Chronicle reported that he spent $19,000 on illegal drubs between 2002-05.  Now a borderline player, Guillen will have a tough time finding work with these latest allegations hanging over his head.

    Who cares who signed for it? Who was it addressed to? I sign packages for my parents all the time. I never have any clue of what’s in them, ever.

    Obiviously, Guilen’s was getting the HGH to improve their sex life. She want to “grow” a certain part of Jose’s anatomy. Doesn’t Jose know that only the Yankees and the Mets get to use HGH without any consequences?
