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.

Moskovitz: Ryan Howard, Ryan Zimmerman Sue Al Jazeera America Over Doping Report

Ryans unite!

Ryan Howard and Ryan Zimmerman have each sued Al Jazeera America, reporter Deborah Davies, and hurdler Liam James Collins today in federal court for Al Jazeera’s report on athletes and doping, which included both baseball players. In their lawsuits, Zimmerman and Howard both claim one count of libel and one count of false light invasion of privacy while laying out similar issues.

Attorneys for Ryan Zimmerman, Ryan Howard send letters to Al Jazeera America demanding retraction - The Washington Post

I didn’t watch the full video. Is this report based entirely on the guy/intern who retracted his claims?

The version of the report on Al Jazeera’s website now contains a correction at the top, dated Monday, that says an earlier version of the written version of the story – not the film – contained references to Zimmerman and Howard using human growth hormone.

“The substance alleged was Delta 2, not HGH,” the correction reads.

The film version of the report contains a conversation between an undercover Al Jazeera reporter and Charles Sly, who Al Jazeera identifies as a pharmacist who once worked at the Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine in Indianapolis, an anti-aging clinic. Sly said in the conversation that Zimmerman used Delta 2. He does not mention HGH.
