Royals' Skoglund tears up talking about drug suspension

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Kansas City Royals pitcher Eric Skoglund broke down in tears Saturday, talking publicly for the first time since Major League Baseball gave him an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Skoglund said he is bewildered about what triggered the positive results. The penalty was imposed last month and will begin at the start of the season.

"We have no idea," Skoglund said in a media room at the Royals' spring training complex. "That's the hardest part. Something got into my body without me knowing, it was scary. It just makes you think what could have been."
