Brewers catcher Severino suspended 80 games for performance-enhancing substance

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Right before the start of the MLB season, Brewers catcher Pedro Severino has been suspended for the first 80 games. The new addition tested positive for Clomiphene which violates the league's performance enhancing drug policy.

Severino says he was prescribe a medication to treat infertility issues and did not know it contained Clomiphene, but he accepts responsibility for the mistake and apologizes to the Brewers and their fans.

Severino signed a one-year deal worth nearly two million dollars this off-season after hitting eleven home runs with the Baltimore Orioles last year.
