Philadelphia Phillies’ second baseman Freddy Galvis will miss more games than expected, but it won’t be because of any back injury. He has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs (PED) and was suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball. The test was positive for a metabolite of Clostebol, an anabolic androgenic steroid.
In a season that’s already had a lot more downs than it has ups, this is another blow to Phillies fans everywhere. However, there is one bright side. Galvis was scheduled to be in a back brace for at least six weeks. Due to a ridiculous loophole, Freddy can serve his suspension while on the disabled list.
In a statement released by the team, Galvis said, “A trace amount of a banned substance – 80 parts in a trillion – was detected in my urine sample," Galvis said in a statement released by the team. "I am extremely disappointed in what has transpired. I cannot understand how even this tiny particle of a banned substance got into my body. I have not and never would knowingly use anything illegal to enhance my performance. I have always tried to follow the team’s strength and conditioning methods, listen to the trainers, work out hard and eat right. Unfortunately, the rules are the rules and I will be suspended." For someone who doesn’t know how something got in his system, Freddy seems awfully willing to serve a suspension.
When does Chase Utley get back?
