Dee Gordon, the reigning National League batting champion, has been suspended for 80 games early Friday after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Major League Baseball announced the suspension that Gordon had tested positive for Exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol.

MLB made the announcement after the Marlins’ victory in Los Angeles. The suspension was the second in second in eight days for a player coming off the best season of his career. Chris Colabello, an undrafted former independent leaguer who hit .321 for the Toronto Blue Jays last season, was also handed suspension for 80 games. Colabello was informed by MLB that he had tested positive for Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone but was not suspended until April 22 after his appeal was denied.

Gordon is hitting .266 and was tied for the team lead in runs scored, with 13, and led the Marlins in steals, with six despite a low .289 on-base percentage. Gordon hit .333 — 61 points above his career average as a Dodger — last season. He led the league in stolen bases and hits while winning a Gold Glove. Gordon rewarded him with a five-year, $50 million contract in January though he was to make only $3 million this season. Gordon issued a statement through the Players’ Association where denied using banned drugs on purpose. The statement said he did not so knowingly and he has informed that test results showed he ingested something that contained prohibited substances.

In the statement, Gordon added the hardest part about this is feeling that he has let down his teammates, the organization, and the fans. The American professional baseball second baseman for the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball added he should have been careful to avoid products that could contain something banned by MLB and the 20-plus tests that he had taken and passed throughout his career prove this. Gordon, who previously played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, said he made a mistake and will accept the consequences.

Gordon was praised by Marlins’ owner, Jeffrey Loria when Gordon’s contract was announced in January. In a statement then, Loria said it is truly incredible and historic what he did in his first season with our ball club. Miami’s team president, David Samson, said the Marlins would welcome Gordon back and added the Marlins completely support the Major League Baseball drug prevention program in every way. Samson remarked the Marlins were informed on Thursday of the positive test and added it is a huge disappointment and a huge loss for our team as we love Dee Gordon, but we do not like what he did.

Marlins Manager Don Mattingly remarked he was shocked and surprised at the positive test of Gordon and said the bad news deflated a team that should have been celebrating its sweep. Mattingly remarked you as a team would expect our guys to be in there all excited and then we get this news and that’s not quite the feeling. The Marlins Manager said we will support Dee and said Gordon is like one of his kids and we are going to move forward.

Florida Clinic Sued By MLB For Doping Players

On Friday, Major League Baseball has sued a now-shuttered South Florida clinic and its operators and accused them of scheming to offer banned performance enhancing drugs to its players in violation of their MLB contracts.

Unspecified damages from Coral Gables anti-aging clinic Biogenesis of America and its operator, Anthony Bosch, were sought by the lawsuit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. The lawsuit also named several other associates of Bosch, who is believed to be out of the country. It was contended by the Major League Baseball that the operators of the clinic solicited players to make use of banned drugs knowing that such use would violate their contracts, specifically the drug prevention and treatment program that became effective in 2003 and is a part of baseball’s collective bargaining agreement with the players, includes a list of banned substances and lays out penalties for violations and imposes testing requirements.

It was also contended by the lawsuit that former star Manny Ramirez, who is now signed to play for a team in Taiwan, obtained a prohibited substance from Bosch in 2009 that ultimately resulted in a suspension of 50 games for Ramirez by MLB when he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers, which marks the first time that the MLB has gone on the record saying Ramirez tested positive for the female fertility drug HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin.

According to the lawsuit, the elements of the scheme included the use of fake or partial names on drug packages sent to players, visits to players at home or at hotels to personally administer the banned substances and claims made to the players that if used properly the drugs “would not result in a positive test” under the MLB drug program. The lawsuit said testosterone, human growth hormone, and human chorionic gonadotropin were among the banned drugs supplied and MLB players were told that the drugs would increase their strength and help them recover from injuries more quickly.

Attorneys Allen Weitzman and Matthew Menchel wrote in the complaint that MLB has suffered “costs of investigation, loss of goodwill, loss of revenue and profits and injury to its reputation, image, strategic advantage and fan relationships,” because of the alleged conspiracy. The lawsuit may offer a way for the Major League Baseball to more deeply investigate Biogenesis and Bosch through depositions of witnesses and subpoenas to obtain documents, although it seeks money damages. The MLB was rebuffed in an effort to get access to clinical records from the alternative Miami New Times newspaper, which has published detailed accounts of the alleged player drug use. The newspaper implicated New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, outfielder Melky Cabrera of the Toronto Blue Jays, Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez, Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon, Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz, and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal though most of them denied a link with Biogenesis. In the past, Rodriguez has admitted to using performance enhancing drugs and Colon, Cabrera, and Grandal were each suspended for 50 games last year for testing positive for elevated testosterone levels.

Jose Bautista is being talked these days as a likely candidate to have used a little extra pick-me-up.

The Toronto Blue Jays slugger recently said the tests under the name of random drug testing policy that is conducted by the Major League Baseball are not really random.

Bautista while speaking at a recent banquet event in the Dominican Republic told the attendees that there is absolutely no reason for anyone to be doubtful of his Hulk-like outbreak as he has been “randomly” tested sixteen times in the last two years for performance enhancing drugs.

The 2-time MLB Home Run Champion and newest member of the 50 HR Club set a Toronto Blue Jays single-season franchise record in the 2010 season when he hit a major league leading 54 home runs and became the first player to earn two consecutive home run titles after Mark McGwire of the National League.
