The scourge of drugs in baseball claimed its third former MVP in a month when Miguel Tejada was suspended Saturday for 105 games after testing positive for an amphetamine.

The Royals' infielder's ban came after Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games, and Brewers star Ryan Braun got a 65-game penalty.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Tejada tested positive for Adderall, a substance the 39-year-old has used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder.
