Hinojosa Suspended 50 Games

I wondered why the Twins called up Jonatan Hinojosa to Cedar Rapids. Now we know. From Bob Nightengale on Twitter:

[COLOR=#292F33][FONT=Arial]Class A [/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#78C1DD]#[/COLOR]Twins[COLOR=#292F33][FONT=Arial] IF Jonatan Hinojosa receives 50-game PED suspension for testing positive for metabolites of Nandrolone.

[/FONT][/COLOR]Hardball Times' Bill Baer said this of Nandrolone:

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid commonly used to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. The athletic benefits of the drug include muscle growth, increased bone density, and increased red blood cell production.[/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]


Because he was on the Cedar Rapids roster, his suspension can start right now. Had he stayed in EST, his suspension would not have started until the Elizabethton season starts in late June.

Hinojosa is the fourth Twins minor leaguer currently suspended. Eddie Rosario, Dallas Gallant and Mark Hamburger are the others. They are all in Ft. Myers playing in Extended Spring Training games.
