WASHINGTON (AP) -- Baseball player Miguel Tejada (mee-GEL' tay-HAH'-dah) has been charged with lying to Congress about steroids. The All-Star shortstop is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow, where he is expected to plead guilty.

Documents filed in Washington federal court indicate that the Houston Astros infielder has a plea agreement in place.

Tejada is charged with lying to investigators for the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in 2005, when he denied knowledge of an ex-teammate's use of performance enhancing drugs while both were playing for the Oakland A's.

The news comes a day after New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez admitted to past use of performance-enhancing drugs.

The FBI also is investigating whether seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens lied to Congress last year when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone.
