Pittsburgh Pirates 17th round draft Michael Clemens has been suspended 68 games after testing positive for HGH. The right-hander has been pitching this year for Bristol, where he had a 1.00 ERA over 18 innings in 13 appearances. The 21-year-old went to McNeese State and signed shortly after the draft.
The total number of games in the suspension was explained in the link above by Danny Wild of MiLB.com:
“Under the rules of the new Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program for Rookie and Short-Season leagues, a first violation receives a discipline of 80 games or the total number of regular-season games in the league, whichever is shorter.”
