Suspensions Newsbeat

Rangers announce seven roster cuts, suspension of LHP Yohander Mendez

Jumping ahead in this:

General manager Jon Daniels announced Wednesday the club has indefinitely suspended pitcher Yohander Mendez for a breach of his contract.

Daniels said Mendez sought unauthorized outside medical care with someone who was not on the Rangers’ approved medical practitioners list. When asked to elaborate, Daniels declined.

The suspension represents a second marred spring for Mendez—he sustained an elbow injury last spring that kept him out until early September. In just under five innings in 2019, Mendez posted a 5.79 ERA with eight strikeouts.

Diamondbacks’ Domingo Leyba receives 80-game drug suspension

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Domingo Leyba was suspended for 80 games on Friday following a positive test under Major League Baseball’s drug program.

Leyba tested positive for the performance-enhancing substance Boldenone, an anabolic steroid.

“We were disappointed to learn of this news and hope that Domingo will take the time away from the game to reflect on his actions and learn from his mistakes,” the Diamondbacks said in a statement.

The 24-year-old from the Dominican Republic hit .280 with five RBIs in 21 games with the Diamondbacks last year and batted .300 with 19 homers and 77 RBIs in 112 games at Reno of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. He is considered one of Arizona’s top prospects and was 4 for 16 with a home run during spring training this year.
