Mets Minor Leaguer Gets Drug Suspension

Relief pitcher Junior Guerra tested positive for Nandralone according to multiple media reports. He’s 24 years old and is coming off an excellent 2008 season in which he pitched to a 1-1 record with a 2.12 ERA at four minor league locations.

He’s currently on the Triple-A Buffalo roster, but now he’s out for the first 50 games of the season. It’s a shame that his season will be cut nearly in half because of this.
