Dee Gordon tests positive for testosterone and Clostebol, suspended 80 games
Dee Gordon has been suspended 80 games for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, MLB announced on Thursday night.
MLB said in its press release that Gordon tested positive for testosterone and Clostebol, which is an anabolic steroid.
There are a few notable takeaways from this story.
1) Gordon getting popped for steroids is further proof that a player’s size has nothing to do with whether or not they are juicing.
2) Is there any coincidence that MLB dropped the news of a reigning batting champ testing positive for steroids well after midnight and at a time when the sports world is consumed with the NFL Draft? They want this buried as much as possible.
3) Barry Bonds has already failed in his role as hitting coach.
Gordon was an All-Star in 2014 and 2015. He was batting .262 with six stolen bases this season.
