MLB: KC Royals 3B Miguel Tejada Linked to Biogenesis

Aug 19 2013, 11:35pm CDT | by

Suspended Kansas City Royals third baseman Miguel Tejada is reportedly linked to Biogenesis.

It seems suspended Kansas City Royals third baseman Miguel Tejada is linked to Biogenesis. 

In the words of ESPN's Pedro Gomez, Tejada "was also implicated in the Biogenesis investigation." He also adds MLB had a choice of investigating Tejada either for his alleged Biogenesis involvement or for testing positive for amphetamines for a third time in his career. 

He was reportedly a customer of Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch. With this, Gomez's source says Tejada was given a choice of a 105-game suspension for amphetamine use or a longer suspension due to the Biogenesis involvement. 

According to D.J. Short of NBC Sports, Tejada's flirtation with performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) goes back to the days of the Mitchell Report and 2009 when he plead guilty to misleading Congress. He reportedly admitted to buying human growth hormone (HGH) but claims he threw them away before he had a chance to use them. 

He was eventually suspended by the league for 105 games on Saturday for testing positive for Adderall, a substance which was used to treat attention deficit disorder.

Tejada previously had a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) which gave him permission from MLB to use the substance. However, it exipred in April, which prompted the MLBPA to insist he should have been allowed to play while the application for the extension was still pending.  

However, the league disagreed so he was subsequently suspended. 

The suspension is the third-longest ever given out by MLB, ranking behind New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez's 211 games this season and former Yankees pitcher Steve Howe's 119 games in 1992. 

Tejada is the 2002 American League MVP and a six-time MLB All-Star who hit .288 with five doubles, three home runs and 20 RBIs in 53 games prior to his suspension.
