Mets minor leaguer Tim Peterson suspended for PEDs


Tim Peterson, a minor league pitcher in the Mets farm system, has been suspended 80 games for a positive test of the performance-enhancing drug Trenbolone.

Peterson was the Mets’ 20th-round draft pick in 2012 out of the University of Kentucky and advanced to Double-A last season as a 23-year-old.

He has a 4.22 ERA in 122 career innings as a pro, with a fantastic 143/32 K/BB ratio spent mostly as a reliever.
