Ortiz denies ever taking steroids

BOSTON Red Sox slugger David Ortiz said taking nutritional supplements may have caused him to land on a 2003 list of major league players who tested positive for performance-enhancing substances.

The five-time All-Star said he was "a little bit careless back in those days when I was buying supplements and vitamins over the counter". "But I never...use(d) steroids," the 33-year-old told a news conference at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. Ortiz and then-teammate Manny Ramirez, who helped the Red Sox end an 86-year World Series title drought in 2004, tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, The New York Times reported on July 30.
