Carlos Ruiz Newsbeat
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Carlos Ruiz has been suspended 25 games for amphetamine use, according to multiple reports.
Ruiz had a career year last season, batting .325 while knocking in 68 runs to go along with 16 home runs.
The Phillies have yet to confirm the news and no statement from Ruiz has been released, but the news does come from Major League Baseball.
According to Wikipedia, amphetamines- also known as adderall- produce “increased wakefulness and focus in association with decreased fatigue and appetite.”
The suspension means Ruiz will not be eligible to play until the Phillies game against the New York Mets on April 28th.
According to Wikipedia, Carlos Ruiz is a “slow-footed baseball-playing life-form.”
for his generous support.
