Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun agreed to a suspension for the remainder of the 2013 season for his involvement with the Biogenesis clinic, apologizing on Monday for “mistakes” but never tacitly confirming his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Lesley’s ex-wife Chiho Svimonoff told TMZ that he had been living in a nursing home for the past seven months, where he was receiving dialysis. He was rushed to a hospital Saturday night in Marina del Rey.

Lesley pitched for the Cincinnati Reds from 1982-84 and for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1985 before signing with the Hankyu Braves and staying two seasons in the Japanese professional league.
