Report: List of MLB PED violators could come out next week
Dee Gordon’s positive steroids test that led to an 80-game suspension may not be an isolated incident but could very well be the antecedent to many more positive tests being announced.
Longtime MLB reporter Peter Gammons tweeted on Friday that Gordon’s name was “one of a few” on a list and that some more names of violators could come out next week.
Some execs told Gordon was one of a few names on a list and there could be some more names out next week. Hope not, but nothing surprises

Gordon was the fifth player since February to be suspended for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. Reliever Jenrry Mejia was was a third-time violator, which results in a lifetime ban. Abraham Almonte, Daniel Stumpf and Chris Colabello were all first-time violators. One player a week has been announced as a violator since Stumpf’s announcement two weeks ago.
