Fernando Abad Serving Retroactive 80-Game Suspension

FanRag’s Jon Heyman reports that Abad’s minor league deal with the Mets in late March was indeed axed when the Mets learned of his failed PED test shortly before the deal became official. Importantly, he notes that Abad went through a lengthy appeal process that was ultimately unsuccessful. However, the beginning of his suspension is retroactive to the filing of the appeal, meaning his suspension will actually finish being served later this month.

Heyman also relays a statement from Abad in which he, like many suspended players before him, indicates that he didn’t knowingly take a banned substance.

In other suspension-related news, Jose Torres received a suspension covering the remainder of the season for his domestic violence thing. It goes in the books as 100 games.

Link.
