Two minor leaguers suspended for drugs

4 Comments

One for PEDs, one for a drug of abuse.

The drugs of abuse guy: San Francisco Giants minor league pitcher Jacob Dunnington. He gets a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug of abuse. He’s a member of the single-A Augusta GreenJackets.

The PEDs guy: Cincinnati Reds shortstop Cesar Mejia, who gets 72-games for testing positive for a metabolite of Boldenone. He plays for the Dominican Summer League Reds, is effective immediately.

And until this very moment I would have guessed that “Boldenone” was a mystical world in some role-playing game. The more you know.
