Apparently the MLB isn’t done handing out suspensions, this time the suspension is handed so someone who wasn’t even involved in the Biogenesis scandal. As I wrote about a couple weeks ago, 13 players were suspended for using performance enhancing drugs, one of these players was New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. So, what could possibly be going on now you ask?This time another infielder is being suspended, Miguel Tejada, an infielder for the Kansas City Royals, has been suspended for 105 games for violating the league’s amphetamine policy. Tejada tested positive for Adderall, a medication used to treat attention deficit disorder, this subjected him to a 25 games suspension, the problem was, he tested positive more than once!
Due to testing positive at least three times, the second and third time were in a short period of time, Tejada was handed a 105 game suspension. Tejada did not appeal this suspension and was immediately suspended, this would put Tejada back in the game after the first 64 games of the 2014 season are done.
According to multiple sources however, Tejada is strongly considering retiring from Major League Baseball. What do you make of all these suspensions? Do you think that the MLB will continue to hand out suspensions or are they just proving a point after the recent Biogenesis scandal? Let me know what you think!
