Detroit Tigers Minor Leaguer Cesar Carrillo Suspended 100 Games


Detroit Tigers minor league pitcher Cesar Carrillo was one of the players named in the Biogenesis documents and it looks like the league has decided to take action. Major League Baseball announced that Carrillo has been suspended 100 games because of “his violations of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program.”

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports was one of the first to pass along the news:

The 100-game suspension is actually two separate suspensions. The first 50 games are being served for being named in the Biogenesis documents, while the second fifty-game ban comes from lying to MLB about knowing Biogenesis clinic owner Tony Bosch.

Now we have to wonder what this means for the other players who were named in the documents.

Carrillo joined the league as a first-round pick (18th overall) of the San Diego Padres in the 2005 MLB Draft.
