The FBI has interviewed New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes about a Canadian doctor accused of selling an unapproved drug known as Actovegin, an extract from calf’s blood used to speed healing, the Associated Press reported.

Reyes said he was interviewed last week about Dr. Anthony Galea at the Mets spring training camp in Florida, the AP reported.

“They just asked me basically how I met the guy and stuff like that and what he put in my body,” Reyes said, according to AP. “I explained to them what he [was] doing . . . I don’t worry about anything. I didn’t do anything wrong.”

A report over the weekend said several atheletes can expect grand jury subpoenas in the case.
