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.
