Mexican league says Canseco refused doping test


MEXICO CITY (AP) - Former major league star Jose Canseco has been suspended from the Mexican league after allegedly refusing to undergo a doping test.

Mexican league president Plinio Escalante says refusing to take a doping test is treated the same as testing positive in the league.

Quintana Roo Tigers team president Cuauhtemoc Rodriguez says doping control doctors advised Canseco against taking the test because he was using a medicine to produce testosterone.

He says Canseco had already informed the team that he was using the medicine because his body doesn't produce the substance naturally.

Canseco told ESPNDeportes that he has a prescription for the testosterone treatment and "can't live without it."
