NEW YORK - Jose Canseco is changing publishers for his sequel on steroids use in baseball.
Canseco's "Vindicated" was dropped Tuesday by Berkley Books, an imprint of Penguin Group USA, The New York Times reported on its website.
Bret Saxon, Canseco's book agent, told the paper that he had obtained another publisher and that the book remained scheduled to be released by opening day. Saxon declined to name the publisher, the paper said.
Canseco is collaborating with Pablo Fenjves, the ghost writer of "If I Did It," the book in which O.J. Simpson gave an imaginary confession to how he would have killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, the paper said. Fenjves replaced Don Yaeger, a former Sports Illustrated associate editor who withdrew.
"Juiced," Canseco's 2005 book, described his steroids use and implicated Mark McGwire, among others
