WASHINGTON (AP) Former major leaguer David Segui says he was told as far back as 2001 that Roger Clemens’ strength
coach had kept evidence against the seven-time Cy Young Award winner.

Segui testified Thursday about a telephone conversion he had with Brian McNamee 11 years ago.  Segui said McNamee “mentioned that he had kept darts to get his wife off his back.”

The jury hearing the Clemens perjury trial will have to assume that “darts” means “needles.” Segui wasn’t allowed by the court to make that connection on the stand.

Segui’s testimony is consistent with McNamee’s, who testified last week he saved waste from an alleged 2001 steroids injection of Clemens to placate his wife.

Clemens is charged with lying to Congress when he denied using steroids and human growth hormone.
