Jose Canseco, the former major-league slugger and admitted steroid user who exposed other players in his 2005 book "Juiced," offered to keep a Detroit Tigers outfielder "clear" in his next book if the player invested money in a movie project Canseco was promoting, according to a person in baseball with knowledge of the situation.
"He is probably desperate for money," Ordonez said. "I don't understand why he is trying to put people down."

Four people in baseball confirmed that referrals were made from Major League Baseball to the FBI regarding Canseco's actions relating to former White Sox star Magglio Ordonez, who was not mentioned in Canseco's first book or in any report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. All four sources insisted on anonymity because they didn't have authority to speak about the events.
