Eric Gagne, the 2003 National League Cy Young award winner, says that '80 percent' of his Dodgers teammates used PEDs.

In his new book titled "Game Over: The Story of Eric Gagne," the 2003 National League Cy Young Award-winner states, "I was intimately aware of the clubhouse in which I lived. I would say that 80 percent of the Dodgers players were consuming [PEDs]."

The former Dodger admitted in 2010 to using human growth hormone during his playing days.

Gagne goes on to say, "It was sufficient to ruin my health, tarnish my reputation and throw a shadow over the extraordinary performances of my career."

From 2002-04, Gagne saved 152 games, including converting a major-league record 84 in a row. In his Cy Young season of 2003, he had an ERA of 1.20 with 55 saves and 137 strikeouts.

Injuries limited Gagne to just 16 games in 2005-06, and in 2007 he found his way to the Texas Rangers. He had 16 saves and a 2.16 ERA for the Rangers before they shipped him to the Boston Red Sox at the deadline, where he struggled with a 6.75 ERA over 20 games.

In 2008, Gagne signed with the Milwaukee Brewers and saved 10 games with an ERA of 5.44 in his final season.

For his career, Gagne was 33-26 with 187 saves and a 3.47 ERA over 643⅔ innings pitched.
