Rangers minor leaguer suspended for drugs

5 Comments

It’s late in the day, so you know what that means:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Texas Rangers left-handed pitcher Martire Garcia has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Clomiphene, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Garcia plays for the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders of the Texas League. Or, he will after 50 games are up. If he’s lucky.
