MLB clears Ryan Howard, Ryan Zimmerman in PED probe

Turns out the shipments were just going to Peyton Manning’s wife!

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard and Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman were cleared of wrongdoing in Major League Baseball’s investigation into their possible use of performance-enhancing drugs, prompted by an Al Jazeera report.

MLB announced Friday that the investigation was complete and it “did not find any violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Howard or Zimmerman.”...

The report was based on recordings with Charles Sly, a former worked at the Guyer Institute in Indianapolis. Sly also implicated several NFL players, including Peyton Manning.

Slay has since recanted his statements. Sly also declined to speak with the commissioner’s office or provide requested information.

Howard and Zimmerman filed lawsuits against Al Jazeera in January. The players claimed the report was inaccurate, unsubstantiated and reckless.

Ryan Howard is benched: “I know where I’m at right now ... I understand.” | PhillyVoice

Howard: He talked to me today. We had a conversation. I told him, I get it. I know where I am right now. You know, I understand. By no means am I trying to relinquish my job or anything but you know, I’ve played the game long enough to know and understand. Hey, I want to win. And I’m going to get my stuff figured out. Going got continue to focus on getting my stuff figured out. Take this time and recoup and keep working. I went over—after I talked to Pete—I went over and told Tommy. Because the mental game of preparing, you know, is different when you know you’re going to be in there. I said hey, you’re in there the next 3-4 days, whatever it may be. Do what you’ve got to do to go out and kick some butt.

Taylor Teagarden – shown in Al-Jazeera documentary – suspended for violating drug policy

Taylor Teagarden, a free agent catcher who was named in the same Al-Jazeera report that connected Peyton Manning and baseball stars Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Howard to anti-aging clinics, was suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball on Friday.

MLB’s statement did not cite a failed drug test in disciplining Teagarden, 32, who appeared in just 17 major league games the past two seasons, most recently with the Chicago Cubs in 2015. Instead, it noted that Teagarden will be suspended upon his signing with another team for “his violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.”

Teagarden was shown on undercover video in the Al-Jazeera America documentary – released in December 2015 – freely discussing his use of performance-enhancing drugs during the previous season.
