Royals pitcher Skoglund given 80-game drug suspension

NEW YORK (AP) Kansas City Royals pitcher Eric Skoglund was suspended Monday for the season's first 80 games after testing positive for two performance-enhancing substances.

The commissioner's office said the positive tests were for selective androgen receptor modulators S-22 (Ostarine) and LGD-4033 (Ligandrol).

Royals general manager Dayton Moore said in a statement Skoglund "unknowingly made a mistake" and "we remain proud of who Eric is as a person and will support him as an organization."
