Marlon Byrd reportedly facing second career PED suspension

Cleveland Indians outfielder Marlon Byrd has reportedly tested positive for performance enhancing drugs for a second time.

Byrd would be facing a 162 game suspension if the report is true.

Byrd was also suspended in 2012 for testing positive for a banned substance. He claimed that that suspension came from a medication he had been using to treat a private medical condition.

Byrd was hitting .270 with 5 home runs in 34 games for Cleveland in 2016. He turns 39 in August, and with a 162 game suspension looming and two positive tests to his name, it stands to reason that he might not get the chance to come back from this.

We heard about a month ago that more PED suspensions were coming from Major League Baseball, and it sounds unlikely that this will be the end of it.
