Kansas City Royals infielder Miguel Tejada has been suspended for 105 games by the MLB for testing positive for PED’s. Tejada’s suspension is effective immediately but he says that he didn’t do it to cheat. Tejada said in an interview with Enrique Rojas of ESPNdeportes.com that he had been using Adderall for the past five years with permission from the MLB but that his last permit expired on April 15th. Tejada also said that he had to continue to take the medicine because he suffers from ADD. Although he uses the medicine for medical reasons, he did not have a permit and will have to serve the suspension in its entirety.
