According to ESPN, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has been suspended 25 games for using amphetamines.

The commissioner's office made the announcement Friday morning, saying Davis would be suspended without pay "after testing positive for an amphetamine in violation of Major League Baseball's joint drug prevention and treatment program."

Davis released a statement of apology through the players' association.

"I apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Orioles organization and especially the fans,'' he said. "I made a mistake by taking Adderall. I had permission to use it in the past, but do not have a therapeutic use exemption this year. I accept my punishment and will begin serving my suspension immediately."
Davis' batting average has dropped from .286 in 2013 to .196 this season.
