Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon released the following statement through Major League Baseball's Players Association on Friday morning regarding his 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.

"Though I did not do so knowingly, I have been informed that test results showed I ingested something that contained prohibited substances. 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+ tests that I have taken and passed throughout my career prove this. I made a mistake and I accept the consequences."
