Tejada is currently on the 60-day disabled list with a strained calf muscle.  The suspension would take him through the remainder of this season and parts of next season to be eligible to play again.   Tejada was batting .288, three homers and 20 RBIs in 53 games.   According to Yahoo Sports: Tejada did not appeal the penalties and will begin serving them immediately from the 60-day disabled list, where the Royals placed him this week with a strained calf. After serving the remaining 41 games in Kansas City’s season, Tejada would be ineligible to play in the first 64 games of 2014, though one source close to Tejada indicated he is strongly leaning toward retiring. This isn’t the first time Miguel Tejada’s name has been mention with PEDs.  Miguel was included in the Mitchell Report back in December 2007.  He was also was implicated by Rafael Palmeiro, who suggested that a supplement given to him by Tejada was responsible for the steroid entering his system.  Tejada denied all allegations saying he only gave Palmeiro a vitamin B-12 shot.
