New York - Giants outfielder Jose Guillen is reportedly being investigated by federal agents as a result of a shipment of human growth hormone that was signed for by his wife.

The New York Daily News reported late Thursday that Guillen, who did not make San Francisco's postseason roster because of a neck injury, had "four bottles of HGH" sent to his wife, who signed for the package. Federal agents were tracking the delivery and, according to the paper, raided Guillen's home upon its arrival.

In 2007, Guillen was reportedly named in the infamous Mitchell Report, the result of a lengthy investigation by George Mitchell which identified the rampant use of performance-enhancing drugs among major league baseball players.

San Francisco acquired the 34-year-old Guillen in August from the Royals. He hit .266 with three homers and 15 RBI in 42 games in his short time with the Giants, who are currently up two games to none over the Rangers in the World Series.
