MLB announced the punishment Saturday. Mejia released a statement through the team saying that he knows the rules and accepts his punishment, but "can honestly say I have no idea how a banned substance ended up in my system."
Analysis: This is the fourth penalty for a positive Stanozolol test reported by MLB in less than a month, following Minnesota pitcher Ervin Santana, Seattle pitcher David Rollins and Atlanta pitcher Arodys Vizcaino. Mejia began the season as New York's closer, but he was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with posterior elbow inflammation.
