Royals Prospect Mondesi Suspended 50 Games After Testing Positive

Royals prospect SS Raul Mondesi was hit with a 50-game suspension from MLB after he "tested positive for Clenbuterol, a drug most commonly associated with breathing disorders such as asthma." The suspension was originally for 80 games but was "reduced to 50 games when Mondesi showed Clenbuterol is found in an over-the-counter cold medication he had taken in the offseason while at home in the Dominican Republic." Because of the "unusual circumstances surrounding his suspension, he will be eligible for the Royals' postseason roster" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 5/10).
