Former All-Star pitcher Carlos Martínez gets 80-game ban for positive drug test

Former All-Star pitcher Carlos Martínez was suspended for 80 games Friday under baseball’s minor league drug program following a positive test for the performance-enhancing substance ibutamoren, which increases human growth hormone.

The 30-year-old right-hander signed a minor league contract with San Francisco on March 19. He was released and signed a minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox on May 7.

Martínez made a pair of starts for Triple-A Worcester, at Toledo on May 8 and against Rochester on May 14, going 0-2 with a 20.77 ERA in 4⅓ innings. He was released May 17.

And also another 80 games for what the Commissioner's Office calls, "sucking like Monica":
