From the blotter:
Free agent Minor League right-handed pitchers Manuel Montilla and Euris Quezada have each received 50-game suspensions without pay after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol. The suspensions of Montilla and Quezada will be effective immediately upon their signing with another Major League organization.
As of the end of March first time suspensions are ratcheted up to 80 games, so I presume this means that these tests were administered before then.
Outfielder B.J. Upton went by the name B.J., short for Bossman Junior, through the 2014 season. His father Manny was known as Bossman, hence Bossman Junior. Upton decided he wanted to be referred to by his birth name Melvin starting in 2015, saying that everyone except baseball fans knew him by that name. Now, he’s back to B.J., Scott Boeck of USA TODAY Sports reports.
For those keeping score at home, Upton is the artist formerly and currently known as B.J.
Upton, 34, hasn’t played in the majors since 2016. He signed a minor league deal with the Indians in December 2017 but was released in the middle of last March and wasn’t able to latch on with another team. It seems unlikely he finds his way back to the majors.
