MLB Pitcher Edinson Volquez Suspended After Positive PED Test

Major League Baseball suspended Cincinnati Reds pitcher Edinson Volquez last month after he tested positive for a performance enhancing drug.  The drug was not disclosed but Volquez claimed it was a prescription fertility medication he took in the Dominican Republic.  Volquez was an All-Star in 2008 with a 17-6 record and 3.21 ERA but was sidelined last year after seven games due to an arm injury that led to Tommy John surgery.  He will be allowed to serve his suspension while on the DL but will lose his salary during this time.
