Report: More MLB PED suspensions are imminent


A rash of recent PED suspensions in Major League Baseball is not finished yet, according to a report.

ESPN’s T.J. Quinn reported for Outside the Lines on Wednesday that several positive drug tests are being processed, which will likely lead to more suspensions. At least one of the positive tests is due to Turinabol, which was the same steroid Chris Colabello tested positive for and has seen a sudden, confusing resurgence.

The positive tests also came in spring training, which has led some observers to speculate that players had not adjusted to improvements in testing and thought the drug was out of their system and no longer detectable when in fact it wasn’t.

The players who tested positive have been notified, but Quinn says that none are big names. There is no word on when the suspensions will be publicly handed down, as much to Justin Verlander’s chagrin, players do have a right to appeal. A previous report implied that we could find out the names sooner rather than later.
