MIAMI (AP) Reigning NL batting champion Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins says he unknowingly took the performance-enhancing drugs that led to his 80-game suspension, but he'll accept the penalty.

The announcement of the suspension by Major League Baseball came shortly after the Marlins' victory at Los Angeles on Thursday night. MLB said Gordon tested positive for exogenous testosterone and clostebol.

"Though I did not do so knowingly, I have been informed that test results showed I ingested something that contained prohibited substances," Gordon said in a statement released Friday by the players union. "The hardest part about this is feeling that I have let down my teammates, the organization, and the fans. I have been careful to avoid products that could contain something banned by MLB and the 20-plus tests that I have taken and passed throughout my career prove this.
