Did I already make one of these? I couldn't find it.
Anyways, seems like enough guys are getting caught these days that making a new thread for each one would be ridiculous.


The newest member of the club

Receiving a 50 game suspension

Yasmani Grandal.

Grandal was a rookie catcher with the Padres last season. He came over the Matt Latos trade. He had an excellent 2012 season hitting .394/.469 which was 44% better than the average MLB hitter. Adding in his defense and base running he was worth 2.6 wins as measured by fWAR.

The Padres will miss his services for the first third of next season.

Testosterone must be harder to detect, which is why those who do get caught are all using it.

HGH is almost impossible to detect without a blood test, players in all leagues use it, not 100% but probably at least 70%.

After his suspension I wonder what his offensive production will be? Surely his power numbers will be down but will he continue to hit for a high average. Did he just start juicing in San Diego after the trade or has he had inflated numbers all the way up through the minors. I'm just glad the Reds got rid of him before his trade value took a beating.
