Two Marlins' minor leaguers suspended for PEDs


Recommended Posts

Baseball announced the suspension of five minor league pitchers Friday for the use of performance-enhancing drugs and a pair of 17-year old, right-handed Dominican minor league pitchers on the Marlins Dominican Summer League team were among them.


According to an email from the commissioner's office, Yeims Mendoza and Andy Parra will each serve 50-game suspensions for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Mendoza, 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in seven appearances, tested positive for a metabolite of Boldenone and metabolites of Nandrolone, while Parra (0-0 with a 4.26 ERA in four appearances including one start) tested positive for metabolites of Nandrolone.

Well I don't think it was helping either of them that much judging by their ERA's.

They join Adam Kam, last years last pick on the suspended list, they barely play 50 games in the GCL so Kam won't be seeing much action this year. Are there any other Marlins minor leaguers out for PED's?


Henry Owens? Or is he back?

That was last season, I don't see him on any affliated minor league team at the present, not sure where he ended up, but yeah he did get popped for PED
