Sports briefs: Miggy heading to Houston

Shortstop Miguel Tejada, who was the American League MVP in 2002 when he was with the A’s, was traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Houston Astros for five players. Baltimore received outfielder Luke Scott, pitchers Matt Albers, Troy Patton and Dennis Sarfate, and third baseman Michael Costanzo for the four-time All-Star. He hit .296 with 18 home runs and 81 RBIs last season.

‘Serious drug culture’ to be exposed in report

Former All-Stars andMVPs are anticipated to be among the 60 to 80 players whose names will be exposed after 20 months of investigation by George Mitchell today. The former Senate majority leader will release his findings in his 304-page report regarding performance-enhancing-drug use in baseball in an 11 a.m. news conference. The Mitchell report also will be posted online at MLB.com shortly after his conference. One source close to the report said that it would reveal the “serious drug culture within baseball, from top to bottom.”
