Harvey confessed during the Tuesday, May 17 federal trial of Eric Kay, who was convicted of providing the fentanyl that led to Skagg's death, the outlet said.

The Baltimore pitcher apparently admitted to using cocaine while playing for the New York Mets, as well as exchanging oxycodone with Skaggs.

The 33-year-old signed a contract with the Orioles last month that would have netted him a $1 million salary, Fox Baltimore reports. Harvey has yet to pitch in any games, the outlet reports.
