Mets minor leaguer Eudor Garcia, a 2014 fourth-round draft pick who played last season at Single-A, has been suspended 80 games following a positive test for performance-enhancing substances Bumetanide and Furosemide.

Garcia showed a lot of promise while hitting .296 with nine homers and a .783 OPS in 105 games at low Single-A Savannah as a 21-year-old third baseman, but now he’ll be forced to sit out the first three months of the 2016 season.

Once eligible, he’ll likely begin the season at Single-A.
