Your semi-daily metabolites of Stanozolol report

15 Comments

Minor league suspension time, people. Today’s perp walk features single-A pitchers from the Indians and White Sox:

Cleveland Indians Minor League pitcher Harold Guerrero has received a 50-game suspension after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance.  Guerrero is currently on the roster of the Single-A Mahoning Valley Scrappers of the New York-Penn League.

Chicago White Sox Minor League pitcher Andre Rienzo has received a 50-game suspension after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance.  Rienzo is currently on the roster of the Single-A Winston-Salem Dash of the Carolina League.

Since I started getting these minor league suspension press releases last year, I’ve noticed that a huge number of them are of pitchers. One would think that would stop people from talking about how pitchers were the big victims of the steroids era, but that would require some critical thinking, and we don’t get much of that when it comes to steroids in baseball.
