Mets’ Reyes meets with FBI about accused doctor

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes says he met with federal investigators last week about a Canadian doctor accused of selling an unapproved drug known as Actovegin.

Dr. Anthony Galea, who also has treated golfer Tiger Woods and several other professional athletes, is facing four drug-related charges in his country. Galea’s assistant also has been charged in the U.S. for having HGH and another drug while crossing the border in September.

Reyes says he talked to the FBI investigators at the Mets’ spring facility in Port St. Lucie for about 45 minutes.

Reyes says they asked him what Galea did when he treated him for his injured right leg last year. He says he has nothing to worry about because he didn’t do anything wrong.
