Brewers minor leaguer suspended for drugs

Jul 28, 2014, 5:34 PM EDT

Police Blotter

After 5pm means police blotter time:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Milwaukee Brewers Minor League third baseman Nick Delmonico has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for an Amphetamine in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Delmonico was a sixth round pick in 2011. He’s currently at single-A Brevard County of the Florida State League — his second time around high-A ball — and he’s not doing that great. So, yeah.

    *insert comment regarding Ryan Braun’s use of a banned substance*

      *comment based on illegal/banned usage of substances

      Sh** only happens in the MLB.

        Not at all. Four NPB players have failed tests and one was getting an unapproved IV treatment. NPB has a wide latitude for meting out punishment. Here’s a fun quiz. Match the player with the penalty:

        Rick Guttormson
        Luis Gonzalez
        Danny Rios
        Kazuki Yoshimi
        Hirokazu Ibata

        Ibata-san and Yoshimi-san!? Goodness my fellow sir PLEASE GIVE ME THE SOURCE OF THIS GOLD. Don’t care about the foreign ones.

        Ibata-san is from Nikkan Sports http://www.nikkansports.com/baseball/news/f-bb-tp0-20110901-828942.html
        Yoshimi-san was covered by Sponichi, but it seems their archives do no back to 2009. All I have is Yakyu Baka, an English language Japanese baseball news aggregator site:

        … Damm, pretty much messed up for Ibata-san right there, I tell you, I was pretty much unaware of these knowing these 2 guys are from Chunichi and were pretty much unknown guys during that time, till for Ibata-san’s performance at the WBC.

    Attention major league teams….

    I’m guessing his dealer plays LF for the Brewers

      Khris Davis? Your an idiot.

      Research what your talking about before embarrassing yourself.

        “Your an idiot.”

        Irony? Irony.

        @doctorofsmuganomics:

    File this under, “what I really learned at Ryan Braun’s hitting camp.”
