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.
