Prentice Redman got suspended while he was suspended

Jul 27, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

Dodgers minor leaguer Prentice Redman is currently serving a 50-game suspension for a positive amphetamine test last month, but that didn’t stop the 30-year-old outfielder from receiving a 100-game suspension yesterday for a second positive test.
Redman spent 15 games in the big leagues for the Mets as a 23-year-old in 2003 and was hitting .332/.402/.551 in 61 games at Triple-A this season, but he won’t play again until 2011 because the 100-game suspension will kick in once he’s done serving the 50-game version.
Assuming, of course, that he doesn’t manage a third suspension in the meantime.

    Is it possible that whatever he took the first time was still somewhat in his system the second test? Wouldn’t that be double jeopardy? No idea if this is the case or not.

    I’m vague on the minor league suspensions plan — if he gets a third one, does he get the permanent ban, like a major league player would?

    72 hrs and meth is out of your system. Testers would know this and not do a follow up until at least that amount of time has passed.
    Looking at the kid’s stats, well regardless of stats, just a shame and waste.
    Hope he can clean up his act.

    Why would they test again while he was already suspended? makes no sense to test him if he is suspended

    Uhh, apparently it does.
