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.

  SHEFFIELD TRAINS WITH THE METS

SHEFFIELD TRAINS WITH THE METSGary Sheffield almost did not make it to the current season of the Major Leagues. On the off-season, the Detroit Tigers let him go while still owing him $14M. He was without work for about 3 days when the New York Mets signed him for $400,000 which he had no choice but to take. With his career on a slow decline and some rumor that linked his name to steroids that was casting a shadow on his future, he’s trying to pick up the pieces.

However, his first day in training with Razor Shines, showed that he’s been a little rusty. The last time he played as an outfielder was with the New York Yankees back in 2005. Now Jerry Manuel has to come up with a plan to use Sheffield on the field. Manuel made an assessment that Sheffield might have to sit it out for a while instead of making his debut in Florida.

When the Tigers let him go on April 2 he already had 499 home runs to his name. One homerun short from the coveted 500 mark. Nevertheless, with his present stint with the Mets, Jerry Manuel could help him reach this goal.

  No offer for Barry Bonds because of Anabolic Steroids

barry-bonds-steroidsIt seems because of the steroid allegations, Barry Bonds can’t find a job as a baseball player in the MLB anymore. He’s been rejected by 3 baseball clubs: Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Mets, and Boston Red Sox. It seems the steroid allegations that ruined Barry Bonds career are going to follow him for the rest of his life. Anabolic Steroid use is the main reason Bonds can’t get a job. However, it is interesting how MANY MLB Baseball players have tested positive for banned recreational drugs like cocaine, got a suspension, but were able to come back and play baseball. In fact, many have been moved to different teams for decades even after numerous drug usage accusations. Why is Barry Bonds the one singled out for something as simple as steroid use? that’s because of the negative media campaigns against the man.

Barry Bonds hasn’t received a single offer to return to the diamond, according to his agent.

“I’m an optimistic guy by nature and I have told Barry that the prospects look bleak,” said Jeff Borris, who represents baseball’s home run king.

Bonds, who turns 44 on July 24, has sat idle since filing for free agency last Oct. 30.

But recent reports suggested the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets expressed an interest in the slugger, and that he worked out with the Boston Red Sox.

“The rumours about Arizona, the Mets and Boston are completely false,” Borris said. “He never had a secret workout with the Red Sox.

“I have had numerous conversations with all three organizations, back to the time when Barry became a free agent in November of 2007, and none of those clubs are interested in him. Barry would play for any one of those clubs if they extended an offer.
