    Likely weed, not PEDs; I believe PEDs are an 80-game suspension - is that right?

    Crap. That is terrible news. My first thought was “hope it’s just pot”... then I thought about Jonathan Singleton and now I’m hoping it’s a big misunderstanding. He needs to grow up quick !

    That's correct. So stupid when you consider if he was in the MLB this wouldn't have happened.

    Think he’s done for the year. He will still need time in the minors etc.

    This sucks.

    True - and this is a good way to limit his innings so if he does come up for a post season run he isn't overburdened.

    I don't have the quote but apparently Lunhow said they considered bringing him up last September - he's not done for the year because of this.

    He must have been hanging around Jon Singleton too much

    Seems like it was adderall, not marijuana.

    I'm thinking he will need playing time somewhere. U think Luhnow will just throw him in with little playing time anywhere?

    May 29th is when he can return. He could still get a September call-up.
