Your 5 p.m. Friday steroid suspensions

Aug 23, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT


What better way to close out the work week than with MLB’s end-of-the-afternoon steroid suspensions.

Today’s unlucky losers were both playing in the Dominican Summer League. Angels outfielder Angel Montilla was busted for Nandrolone, while White Sox right-hander Pedro Rodriguez got nabbed for Stanozolol.

Montilla, 20, was hitting .234/.321/.248 with 16 steals in 145 at-bats in his third year in the DSL. Rodriguez, 22, had allowed seven runs — three earned — in six innings. He was also in his third year in the league. Given their ages, both players may well have been on their way to getting released at season’s end even if not for the positive tests.

    Are you sure that wasn’t from the Marlins?

    Two more fail the IQ test.

    More proof that so called PEDs rarely enhance performances.

      I made a comment similar to kinggw’s once. I forgot who replied but I received a wall of text in response about how the player was obviously using the roids incorrectly. I was confused to say the least.
