Ronny Paulino suspended 100 games for second PED-related offense

Catcher Ronny Paulino hasn’t played in the majors since 2012 and is currently with the Tigers as a minor-leaguer. Wednesday, Major League Baseball announced that he has been suspended for 100 games as a result of testing positive for exogenous Testosterone.

This is Paulino’s second offense, hence the 100-game ban instead of 50.

I can cross him off my HOF Ballot.

I always got Ryan Doumit and Ronny Paulino confused.

Apropos of nothing.

So they suspected he took the PED just once and wasn't on a regular schedule? Otherwise I'm sure MLB would have bought his stolen medical records and suspended him for 211 . . . I mean 162 games, give or take.

Paulino's exactly the sort of player you'd think would have a go at PEDs so long as there is any chance of beating the testing regime. He's a replacement(ish)-level ballplayer who's about to turn 33. A small improvement and maybe he's spending the next four years as a backup catcher somewhere, making two or three million dollars and maxing out his pension. Or he doesn't use, suffers a little bit more age-related decline, and is completely done after a couple more years hanging around in AAA. The pressure to give it another try would be overwhelming.

Given the level of effort he displayed in Pittsburgh, I am, to be honest, kind of surprised to know that Ronny Paulino cared enough about his career to take PEDs even once, much less twice.

I'd be SHOCKED AND OFFENDED!!! by this news if I had any idea who Ronny Paulino was.

Paulino, 32, will begin serving his suspension at the beginning of the season for the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens.


Toledo-cruel and unusual punishment. He should appeal and try to serve his suspension in Hawaii. What is the third offense-North Korea?

Put an asterisk on his home run total.

If a Paulino fails a drug test in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
