On Tuesday, San Francisco Giants reliever Guillermo Mota was activated from the restricted list after he served a suspension of 100 games for his second positive drug test. Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt has been placed on the paternity list by the Giants to make room on the roster for Mota.

The Giants reliever was suspended for Clenbuterol, which he claimed was in a cough syrup for children. He was previously suspended in 2006 when he was with the New York Mets and the team was eliminated by the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs. Mota was traded by the Mets for starting catcher Johnny Estrada. A third positive test would mean a lifetime ban for Mota and he said he would be more careful in the future.

Guillermo Reynoso Mota was born on July 25, 1973 and has pitched for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, Florida Marlins, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, and Milwaukee Brewers. Mota is presently with the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. Signed by the New York Mets in 1990 as an infielder, Mota had a batting average of .249 with one home run and one stolen base and amassed a .934 fielding percentage in 43 game when he was assigned to the rookie-league Gulf Coast League Mets in 1993 as a third baseman.

He was moved to the shortstop position and assigned to the single-A Capital City Bombers of the South Atlantic League in the year 1995 and batted .243 and struck out 127 times in 400 at bats while committing 40 errors at shortstop. Mota made a return to St. Lucie Mets in 1996 where he batted .234 with 90 strikeouts in 304 at bats while committing 21 errors and was converted into a pitcher in 1997. In 1997, the Dominican baseball player was assigned to the Cape Fear Crocs of the South Atlantic League and he had a 5–10 record with a 4.36 earned run average (ERA) and 112 strikeouts in 126 innings. In 1999, he started with season with the Ottawa Lynx of the triple-A International League and had a 2–0 record with a 1.89 ERA and five saves in 14 games.

In the year 2003, he had a 6–3 record with a 1.97 ERA in 76 games and went on to become the setup man to closer Éric Gagné in 2004. After being suspended in November 2006 for using performance enhancing drugs, Guillermo Reynoso Mota was re-signed by the Mets to a two-year, $5 million contract on December 7 and was traded on November 20, 2007 to the Milwaukee Brewers.

In 2010, Guillermo Mota signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants and won his first career World Series despite struggling at times during the season. He became one of three players in the history of Major League Baseball to fail a drug test twice when it was shown he tested positive for Clenbuterol. He was suspended for 100 games on May 7, 2012 by MLB after he tested positive for Clenbuterol.

Report on steroids cites collective failureA blistering report by former senator George J Mitchell has tied 89 Major League Baseball players, including Roger Clemens, to the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs.

This report made use of informant testimony and supporting documents for offering a richly detailed portrait of what Mr. Mitchell described as “baseball’s steroids era.”

Mitchell said there was a collective failure for recognizing the issue as it emerged and recommended that players on the list not be disciplined but baseball should “look ahead to the future” and establish stringent testing.

MORE NAMES BEING LINKED TO STEROIDSThe steroids issue is not ready to be put to rest as more baseball players are being named linking them to the use of performance enhancing drugs. The latest in the string of MLB icons being dragged into the forefront is former pitcher of the Dodgers, Ismael Valdez. On Sunday, The New York Times had released a report naming Troy Glaus of the Toronto Blue Jays, pitcher Scott Schoeneweis, and journeyman catcher Todd Greene as the new set of personalities in baseball found to be guilty of injecting steroids that had been prescribed by Roman Scruggs, a 62 year old anti aging doctor.

The Los Angeles Dodgers had signed in Ismael Valdez in 1991 and began in the major leagues in 1994.

Most fans wonder who else among their baseball heroes are not into steroids? America’s well loved sport is going to the dogs. One just wonder if there is still any way to redeem this game.
