Orioles minor leaguer suspended

Friday police blotter time:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Baltimore Orioles Minor League right-handed pitcher Eduardo Gamboa has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for exogenous Testosterone, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Gamboa plays for Triple-A Norfolk. He’s 29 and isn’t a prospect. I suppose he figured giving a little testosterone a try would maybe fix that, but nope.
