Feds want to talk Mets' Beltran about doctor

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Several media outlets are reporting
federal investigators want to talk to Mets center fielder Carlos Beltran regarding a Canadian doctor accused of selling an unapproved drug.

The Daily News of New York was the first to report that investigators are interested in speaking with Beltran, who has been rehabbing this spring after right knee surgery and hasn't been seen much in the Mets' locker room.

Dr. Anthony Galea is facing four charges in Canada related to the drug known as Actovegin, which is extracted from calf's blood and used for healing.

Investigators talked to Mets shortstop Jose Reyes last week and New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez says he has been contacted about the probe.
