 ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Marlon Byrd's steroids suspension two years ago didn't stop the Philadelphia Phillies from giving the outfielder a big contract.
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. says ''unfortunately, it's part of the game and, hopefully, it's getting itself eliminated.''
At the time of his suspension, Byrd said he mistakenly used medication for a recurrence of a condition that earlier required surgery. He says he did not use it for performance enhancement.
Byrd's agreement calls for $8 million in each of the next two seasons and includes an $8 million team option for 2016. The option would become guaranteed if he has 1,100 at-bats in the next two seasons, including at least 550 in 2015, or 600 at-bats in 2015.
