July 22, 2013 Updated Jul 22, 2013 at 5:30 PM EST

Major League Baseball Bud Selig on Monday announced that Milwaukee Brewers left fielder and former National League MVP Ryan Braun has been suspended without pay, effective immediately, for violations of the Basic Agreement and its Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

According to the news release issued by MLB announcing his suspension, Braun said:

"As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization. I am very grateful for the support I have received from players, ownership and the fans in Milwaukee and around the country. Finally, I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed - all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates. I am glad to have this matter behind me once and for all, and I cannot wait to get back to the game I love."
