Mariners’ Tim Beckham suspended for PED violation

Seattle Mariners infielder Tim Beckham has been suspended 80 games without pay after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Major League Baseball announced the suspension Tuesday, effective immediately.

Beckham, the former No. 1 overall draft selection, tested positive for Stanozolol, according to MLB.

“I was given a product from a trusted source, who had advised me that it was safe to take,” Beckham said in a statement. “Regrettably, the product was tainted.”
