Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was suspended for the remainder of the season for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement.

Major League Baseball announced the suspension, which is 65 games, on Monday. Braun admitted using performance-enhancing drugs but did not provide any specifics.

The 2011 National League MVP was the first player suspended as part of the investigation into Biogenesis, a South Florida anti-aging clinic that allegedly provided performance-enhancing drugs to dozens of players.

“As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect,” Braun said in a statement, according to reports. “I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions.”

Braun, the son of an Israeli-born father and Catholic mother, was suspended in 2012 for using performance-enhancing drugs but successfully appealed the 50-game suspension and denied he ever used PEDs.
