Carpenter out of lineup serving one-game suspension

Cardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter will sit out Tuesday’s series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays with a one-game suspension.

Carpenter received the suspension after making contact with home plate umpire John Tumpane in Sunday’s contest at the Milwaukee Brewers. In that game, Carpenter and manager Mike Matheny were ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the top of the seventh inning.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Steve Delabar suspended 80 games for positive PEDs test

Indians pitcher Steve Delabar received an 80-game ban from Major League Baseball on Monday for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Delabar, 33, tested positive for ostarine, a muscle-building (or maintaining) agent that is consumed orally.

Two others were also suspended. Mariners reliever Jonathan Aro drew 50 games, while former Cubs righty Jeffry Hernandez (currently unsigned) got 80 games after testing positive for Stanozolol.

Report: Mets’ Jeurys Familia receives 15-game suspension

According to a Wednesday morning report from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, New York Mets’ closer Jeurys Familia has finally learned his fate. After previously meeting with Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday, Familia has now been handed a 15-game suspension to start the 2017 regular season…..

The 27-year-old was originally charged with simple assault back in October following an arrest at his home. Police found Familia’s wife with both scratches on her chest and a bruise on her cheek while the charges were ultimately dropped as the case was dismissed by a New Jersey judge.

Nonetheless, the league has a no tolerance policy regarding domestic violence as Major League Baseball’s investigation did not end until Wednesday afternoon.

Why MLB allows players suspended for domestic violence to play in postseason

The difference is jarring, creating a surface impression that baseball takes a harsher stance against PEDs than domestic violence. But in the view of both baseball and the players’ union, the comparison is not apples to apples.

The joint PED policy is the outlier; no other suspensions in baseball include a postseason ban. The two sides agreed to the additional penalty in March 2014 after some players expressed anger that two players suspended for PEDs the previous season, Jhonny Peralta and Nelson Cruz, returned in time to participate in the playoffs.

One concern among players was that the benefits of PEDs extend beyond the period of usage, providing an additional competitive advantage. As one union official put it, a decision to use PEDs is “a work-related choice that calls into question the integrity of your job and the game being played on the field.”

An act of domestic violence, while a far more serious offense in the view of the average person, is not work-related. Both baseball and the union regard it as a private, off-the field matter.
