say no to drugs

Orioles minor leaguer Michael Ohlman, a 20-year-old catcher who was the team’s 11th-round draft pick in 2009, has been suspended 50 games for violating the minor league drug policy.

According to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com he tested positive for a “drug of abuse” rather than something performance-enhancing.

Ohlman is stuck at low Single-A for a third straight season and began this year on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. He hit just .224 with four homers and a .627 OPS in 105 games there last season and isn’t considered a prospect after also struggling in rookie-ball.

    Dear all MLB players: Stop cheating. Kinda undignified and unfair, y’know.
    Thanks!

    He wasnt cheating dipwad they said he wasnt on performance enhancers but probably pot or some other recreational drug.

    Maybe he should cheat; it’s the only way he’ll ever sniff the Show.
