The 28-year-old Marlins second-baseman tested positive for two different PEDs and has been suspended for 80 games effective immediately.

I assume there’s no recourse because it would be a huge can of worms for MLB, but he’s the guy who got the game-tying hit tonight to knock Maeda out of the game.
The Dodgers’ prospects are not ALL young men of lily-white behavior. Two of them were just suspended for fifty games to start the season. For Robert Carson, that’s when Oklahoma City’s schedule is set; for Theo Alexander it’s Ogden’s schedule.
