Hope this doesn’t hurt the Marlins competitively …

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Miami Marlins Minor League right-handed pitcher Juan Arias has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

He plays in the Dominican Summer League, so somewhere Dan Shaughnessy is sitting back and saying “I told you so.”
