Royals' Tejada suspended for 105 games

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Major League Baseball suspended the Kansas City Royals' Miguel Tejada over the weekend.

He was suspended for repeatedly using a banned substance—the stimulant Aderall.

Tejada says he took the drug to treat his ADD, not to enhance his performance on the field.

His ban comes after New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez's suspension for 211 games.

Tejada's suspension also comes on the heels of Brewers' star Ryan Braun suspension of 65 games. 

Twelve other players received 50 game suspension.
