David Castillo of the Oakland A's Single-A team was given a penalty of 60 games.
Minor league penalties for violations are
15 games for 1st positive test;
30 for second;
60 for third;
1 year for fourth;
lifetime ban for fifth positive.
this guy has been busted 3 times allready?
Also, why is MLB dropping these names on opening day. Thats two days in a row. Makes you wonder if there will be more names tomorrow. I guess they figure that more people will be paying attn. since its opening day and they will see "Suspensions", and figure that MLB is fixing the problem.
Personally I think it takes away from the "Opening Day" atmosphere and is a poor decision by Selig.
