Freddy Galvis Tests Positive

Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Freddy Galvis, who is currently on the Disabled List with a fractured vertebra, has been suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for Clostebol, a prohibited substance.

Expected to be out at least another month with his lower back injury, he will serve at least the majority of the suspension while on the DL. However, as a player earning close to the league minimum, the $150,000 fine that comes with the suspension will be a serious consequence.

His three home runs, as part of his 19 total extra base hits this season for the Phillies, will forever be tainted by the findings of the Health Policy Advisory Committee.
