He is 8-13 with a 2.87 earned-run average and 104 saves over four seasons with the Blue Jays.

Basile said the 23-year-old intends to plea not guilty and he plans to meet with the Crown to seek a resolution to the case ahead of a July 9 hearing, and some privately questioned why Major League Baseball jumped the gun.

"I don't have much of a reaction other than you take what Major League Baseball does and trust that and live with that and let it go through its course", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said before Friday night's road game against the Los Angeles Angels. "We've kind of moved past that anyway and made do with what we've had". He'll miss out on roughly $2.7 million in salary - $35k per game.
