I'm not sure I follow you and I'm not sure I know all the rules in terms of PEDS so feel free to clarify this example.
Let's say Joey Votto goes to the doctor and it is found he has low testosterone. So the doctor prescribes him testosterone injections. (Legal, right?)
So Joey Votto takes his vial of testosterone, goes in front of the media, and injects himself with testosterone. Does he get suspended after his drug screen the next day, or does he have a waiver?
If he would get suspended he was just suspended by MLB for using a perfectly legal prescription. (But maybe he wouldn't?)
