Major League Baseball (MLB) has imposed drug suspensions on Houston Astros rookie David Paulino as well as minor leaguers Joseph Colon of Cleveland and Joan Gregorio of San Francisco.

Paulino, who is the only one presently in the majors, received a ban of 80 games after he tested positive for Boldenone, an anabolic steroid. The suspension of Paulino started with Saturday night’s game against the New York Yankees. Paulino has started six games for the first-place Astros this season, going 2-0 with a 6.52 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 29 innings.

In a statement, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said we are disappointed in the news regarding David Paulino. Luhnow added we hope this is a one-time incident and something David can learn from as he continues his career. The Astros general manager also commented that the Astros will continue to fully support Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Colon tested positive for a synthetic drug whose effect is similar to that of Testosterone. The 27-year-old right-hander made his big league debut with the Indians last July 8 and was 1-3 with a 7.20 ERA in 11 relief appearances. Colon has a 4.13 ERA in 28 relief appearances this year at Triple-A Columbus.

Gregorio showed evidence of the anabolic steroid Stanozolol. The 25-year-old Gregorio is 4-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 13 starts this year at Triple-A Sacramento. The 6-foot-7 starter was performing well for the Triple-A Sacramento and came close to being promoted more than once in June. Gregorio was even pulled from his warmups before a game in Las Vegas as the Giants weighed a move and he was likely to be in the team had he not injured his back a few days back. Gregorio was expected to replace Dan Slania but the chance has now been bagged by Chris Stratton who got the call and arrived in time for the game.

Both of them have been banned for the rest of the season.

This year, Pittsburgh All-Star outfielder Starling Marte and Philadelphia pitcher Elniery Garcia were banned under the major league drug program. In this year, there have been 47 suspensions under the minor league program.

Kansas City Royals catcher Mark Sanchez was recently suspended for 80 games under the minor league drug program of baseball following a positive test. The 22-year-old tested positive for the performance enhancing substance, Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone. Sanchez, a 35th-round draft pick last year, was hitting .206 with two RBIs in 11 games this season for Lexington of the Class A South Atlantic League.

Few weeks back, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Jair Jurrjens was suspended for 80 games following a positive test for Testosterone that did not originate in his body. The 31-year-old right-hander is 4-3 with a 4.64 ERA in 10 starts and one relief appearances this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He has not appeared in a game since June 7. A native of Curacao, Jurrjens is a veteran of eight major league seasons and an All-Star with Atlanta in 2011. He is 53-38 with a 3.72 ERA for Detroit (2007), the Braves (2008-12), Baltimore (2013) and Colorado (2014).

  Mejia Claims Conspiracy By MLB Over His Doping Ban

New York Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia has claimed he was the victim of a conspiracy after he was issued a lifetime doping ban by Major League Baseball.

The 26-year-old Dominican right-hander told the New York Times that MLB officials were out to get him in a witch hunt. Mejia also blamed officials of the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPS) for not finding grounds to appeal his punishment.

Mejia tested positive for Boldenone last month that was his third positive test for a banned performance enhancing substance in less than a year after which he was banned for life. Mejia claimed he was only guilty of the first violation and added the second positive test was not accurate and he was pressurized by MLB officials to share information about his doping connections. The Mets pitcher said he felt there was a conspiracy against him and also remarked he feels that they were trying to find something to bring me down in his career. Mejia, who was named the Mets’ closer in May 2014, said they will find a way to find a third positive if he appealed the results of the second test.

The Dominican professional baseball pitcher who played for the New York Mets of Major League Baseball was suspended for the first 80 games of the 2015 season after he tested positive for Stanozolol, a performance enhancing drug. In July 2015, he received his second suspension after a second failed test for Stanozolol and Boldenone and a third positive was reported on February 12, 2016, resulting in his permanent suspension from Major League Baseball. The lifetime ban imposed on Mejia also prohibits him from playing Professional baseball leagues in other countries, including Japan, South Korea, and Mexico. However, Mejia could apply for reinstatement in one year to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred but he is then expected to sit out a minimum of two seasons before he could be reinstated to pitch in Major League Baseball.

The claim of Mejia was denied by Pat Courtney, a spokesman for Major League Baseball. Courtney remarked no one at MLB or representing MLB has met with Mejia regarding any of these drug violations.

Born in Dominican Republic, Mejia developed an interest in baseball after he realized that large signing bonuses were paid to players. His skills got the attention of many teams like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees and he signed with the Mets for $16,500 at the age of 17 in 2007. Jenrry Mejia was named the 48th best prospect in the major leagues in the MLB.com Midseason Top 50 Prospect list after his success in the 2009 season. The Mets assigned him after the 2009 season to the Surprise Rafters of the Arizona Fall League and Mejia was ranked as the 56th best prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America in February 2010. Mejia made major league debut on April 7, 2010 and presently remains under control of the New York Mets until the end of his current contract.

  Mets Pitcher Mejia Gets Record Life Doping Ban

On Friday, Major League Baseball announced a permanent ban on New York Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia after he tested positive for the anabolic steroid Boldenone. The lifetime suspension is the longest drug-related ban ever issued by Major League Baseball.

The right-handed pitcher is the first player to be banned for life from the MLB for failing three performance-enhancing drug tests. Under the league’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, a third violation for performance-enhancing drugs results in a permanent suspension. However, the program also says that a player so suspended may apply, no earlier than one year following the imposition of the suspension, to the Commissioner for discretionary reinstatement after a minimum period of two years. A spokesman for the agents of Mejia remarked the New York Mets reliever had no comments and it is still is still not clear whether the 26-year-old Mejia would apply for reinstatement in the future.

Mejia was banned for 50 games in April 2015 after he tested positive for Stanozolol. Mejia returned in July 2015 after serving the suspension but played in merely seven games before he tested positive for both Stanozolol and Boldenone. The Mets reliever was then banned for 162 games that would have carried over into the 2016 season.

In a statement, New York Mets said we were deeply disappointed to hear that Jenrry has again violated Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The team added we fully support MLB’s policy toward eliminating performance enhancing substances from the sport and also commented that as per the Joint Drug Program, we will have no further comment on this suspension.

Mejia has a 3.68 career ERA in 18 starts and 95 relief appearances. He was signed by the Mets in 2007 and reached the major leagues in 2010. He went 9-14 with a 3.68 earned-run average in 113 major league appearances, all for the Mets from 2010-2015. Last year, Mejia was the Mets closing relief pitcher on opening day but his injury meant Jeurys Familia took over that role and helped the Mets win the National League title before losing to Kansas City in last year’s World Series. The Dominican professional baseball pitcher as a relief pitcher made the Mets 2010 opening day roster that made him the youngest Met to make an opening day roster since Dwight Gooden.Mejia made his major league debut on April 7, 2010.

It was reported by NPR’s Tom Goldman that many say baseball is in a post-steroids era, but Mejia, from the Dominican Republic, is one of a number of Latin American players, mostly minor leaguers, who’ve tested positive for banned drugs in recent years.

Mejia became the first person to be banned for life due to use of performance enhancing drugs, and one of only two living people to be permanently banned, the other being Pete Rose who was accused of gambling on baseball games while playing for and managing the Reds, including claims that Pete bet on his own team. This was after ESPN concluded an investigation on June 22, 2015 and determined that Pete Rose bet on baseball while still a player, from 1984 to 1986.

  Pan Am Games Athletes Pulled For Doping

The Pan American Sports Association has announced positive doping cases at the Pan American Games.

The association says four of the athletes — Cinthya Vanessa Dominguez Lara of Mexico, Peruvian swimming silver medalist Mauricio Fiol, Nelson Gomez of Puerto Rico, and Javier Jesus Ortiz Angulo of Colombia — tested positive for anabolic steroids while the fifth, Mario Mercedes Castillo of the Dominican Republic, tested positive for a banned stimulant.

Mexican weightlifter Cinthya was withdrawn before her competition after she registered a failed test in a sample conducted on July 8. The weightlifter, a silver medal winner at the 2007 Games in Rio de Janeiro, is now facing life ban after having served suspensions during the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico.

Eduardo De Rose, chairman of the Pan American Sports Organization, remarked the medical commission is, in a certain way, surprised to have so many cases at the beginning of the Games, but the numbers will ultimately be more or less the same that we have at every games. De Rose added but we are working here under the new regulation of WADA so the controls are much harder than the controls that we had for the 2011 Pan Ams in Guadalajara.

Mauricio Fiol failed an anti-doping test for Stanozolol (Winstrol) and would now be stripped of his silver medal while the bronze medal of Canada’s Zack Chertat would be upgraded to silver while teammate Alec Page would move up to third place.

  Winstrol is commonly used as a cutting cycle drug by athletes and bodybuilders to lose body fat and gain lean muscle mass.

It was also reported that Guatemala’s weightlifter Astrid Camposeco also failed a drug that she took on May 23 but the results were received only on July 9. Brazilian weightlifter Patrick Mendes also tested positive and now faces a life ban after registering the second positive of his career. The 25-year-old, a former two-time United States heavyweight champion, was suspended in March 2012 for two years for using a human growth hormone. He now has tested positive for testosterone metabolites after he missed out on a medal by just five kilograms in the final. Puerto Rican baseball team’s first baseman Nelson Gomez failed for anabolic steroid Boldenone.

During the 2011 Games in Guadalajara, four failed tests were registered including one by Canadian wakeboarder Aaron Rathy, who was stripped of a silver medal after who tested positive for banned stimulant Methylhexaneamine. Rathy was stripped of his medal and admitted he took accidentally after buying a supplement at a store he saw in malls across Canada. At that time, Rosemary Pitfield, director, executive operations and public affairs with the Canadian Centre for Ethics In Sport, said we have put out an athlete advisory to notify athletes that Methylhexaneamine is a substance that can be found in both dietary supplements as well as in energy drinks. Methylhexaneamine was only banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2010. It is a mild stimulant commonly used in nasal decongestants and as a dietary supplement.

  Silva Flunks Post-Fight Drug Test

Silva Flunks Post-Fight Drug Test

The final result of the so-called greatest heavyweight bout in UFC history will now have an asterisk next to it. This was after Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone in a post-fight drug test in Australia after his December 6 fight against Mark Hunt in Brisbane. The bout’s result will be overturned to a no contest on Silva’s record and remain a draw on the official resume of Hunt.

UFC president Dana White who believed the fight between Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva was one of the best fights of 2013 said he was bummed out as he loved that fight so much.

According to a statement released by the UFC officials, all fighters on the UFC FIGHT NIGHT card were drug tested by an independent third-party laboratory at the event and all fighters passed their drug tests with the exception of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. The statement added although Silva is on a medically approved regimen of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), and had been in compliance with therapeutic guidelines on all pre-fight tests performed prior to the event but the results of his test on the day of the event indicated a level of testosterone outside of allowable limit. It was added that Silva has been informed that the elevated testosterone level is a violation of the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and his Promotional Agreement with Zuffa. The UFC statement revealed that Antonio Silva will receive a nine month suspension retroactive to the date of the event and he must pass a drug test upon completion of the suspension before receiving clearance to compete again. It was further added that Silva will additionally forfeit $50,000 in bonus money and the forfeited bonus will go to his opponent Mark Hunt.

António Carlos Silva, the Brazilian mixed martial artist who currently competes in the Heavyweight division of the UFC, had been medically approved for testosterone-replacement therapy and was expected to stay within legal limits at all times to continue using the treatment. Pre-fight testing showed the UFC fighter was in line with all parameters of the legal limits leading up to the bout but his post-fight test resulted in elevated levels of testosterone. This is the second failed post-fight drug test of Silva after he tested positive for anabolic steroids following a 2008 fight in the now-defunct Elite XC promotion. Silva tested positive for Boldenone, a steroid that has also cost fighters like Josh Barnett and Phil Baroni. He was then given a one-year suspension by the California State Athletic Commission and fined $2,500.

Silva is the former EliteXC Heavyweight Champion, a former Cage Rage World Heavyweight Champion, and a former Cage Warriors Super Heavyweight Champion. He is presently ranked the #5 Heavyweight in the world by Sherdog and had competed in the past for K-1 Hero’s, BodogFIGHT, Strikeforce, and World Victory Road. Antonio Silva made his professional debut in the United Kingdom against Georgian fighter Tengiz Tedoradze and won by TKO only 48 seconds into the fight. Later on, he made his debut at the Cage Rage and became the Cage Rage World Heavyweight Champion and then made a return to Cage Warriors to fight longtime veteran Ruben “Warpath” Villareal for the Cage Warriors Super Heavyweight Championship and won again via TKO, and became the Cage Warriors Super Heavyweight Champion.

Stephan Bonnar Hints At Retirement – Cliff Notes
 

Stephan Bonnar steroidsUltimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight @Stephan Bonnar is running out of options these days. Bonnar who was campaigning to get in front of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) cameras opposite longtime rival and original castmate Forrest Griffin has given some hints of retirement.

Bonnar was suspended for nine months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after he tested positive for anabolic steroids after his fight against Forrest Griffin at UFC 62: Liddell vs. Sobral. The banned substance in the post-fight urine sample of Bonnar was Boldenone Metabolite, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Boldenone or Equipoise is a banned substance and anabolic steroid on the list of all the major athletic commissions and sports leagues.

The American mixed martial artist who currently competes for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rose to fame after he took the second spot on season 1 of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV. Bonnar is well-known in the world of MMA for never being knocked out or submitted in MMA competition and earned his Taekwondo black belt at the age of sixteen.

The MMA fighter was awarded a contract to fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship after he exhibited good skills in the light-heavyweight finals, where he lost against Forrest Griffin by unanimous decision (29–28). The 2002-04 Ironheart Crown Light Heavyweight champion and Total Fight Challenge Light Heavyweight champion trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the legendary Carlson Gracie has also trained in Muay Thai during several trips to Thailand. Fan of the rock band The Who, Stephan Bonnar uses their song “Eminence Front” as his entrance music to UFC fights. Bonnar has gone on to take part in some of the bloodiest wars in the history of mixed martial arts (MMA) since the infamous brawl night in April of 2005 with fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season one contestant, Forrest Griffin.

Stephan Bonnar Hints At Retirement – Video

Born on 4th April 1977 and nicknamed “The American Psycho“, Stephan Patrick Bonnar has announced his plan to retire from MMA unless a third fight with Forrest Griffin or Quinton Jackson comes his way that is highly unlikely as Griffin will meet Chael Sonnen at UFC 155 and Jackson is scheduled to fight Glover Teixeira at UFC 153.

In 2005, the MMA fighter was part of the first class of TUF alongside other future UFC staples like Forrest Griffin, Diego Sanchez, Josh Koscheck, Kenny Florian, and Chris Leben.

In a recent interview, Bonnar said while addressing rumors of his potential retirement that retirement is not his preference, but he just has not had any offers that have been worth time. Bonnar remarked, “I fought every second of every fight I was in. I’ve never been stopped, legitimately, and I’ve only lost to champions. I’ve been hit with a ton of shots. I’ve never so much as acknowledged one of them.” The MMA fighter is present lobbying for a TUF coaching spot opposite Forrest Griffin or a match against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. With neither of his requests like to be entertained, the world may have already seen the last of Bonnar in the cage. Bonnar won his last three fights, with consecutive victories over Kyle Kingsbury, Igor Pokrajac, and Krzysztof Soszynski.
