MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (CBSDFW.COM) – Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has been suspended without pay for the remainder of the 2013 season, Major League Baseball announced on Friday.

“I realize now that I have made some mistakes,” Braun said in a statement. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions.”

Braun violated the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

“We commend Ryan Braun for taking responsibility for his past actions,” said Rob Manfred, Executive Vice President, Economics & League Affairs for Major League Baseball. “We all agree that it is in the best interests of the game to resolve this matter. When Ryan returns, we look forward to him making positive contributions to Major League Baseball, both on and off the field.”

Braun has been a focal point of MLB’s recent investigation into the South Florida anti-aging clinic Biogenesis. As many as 20 players, including Rangers Nelson Cruz, may be suspended for their ties to the clinic.

The suspension is estimated to cost Braun roughly $3.5 million in salary, however he is still under contract for $117 million through 2020.
