Twins' RHP Dallas Gallant (lately of CR Kernels) was suspended 50 days because of PED (amphetamine) use. Report here. 24. Single A. Not too great performance and then this, I doubt he is a Twin much longer...

Gallant has dealt with a couple of serious injuries in the last few years. First the Tommy John, then while recovering had to have a nerve relocated because it was causing his arm to tighten up.

Dallas is a good dude. I've got the chance to meet him and converse with him. He seems pretty shaken up by this. I didn't ask for details but he repeatedly said, "it's not what it seems like." I certainly believe him.

I'm pulling for him, regardless of what spurred the positive test - and got his appeal denied - and wish him the best as he faces another obstacle in his journey.

I talked to him when the news broke. He's a good dude. Told me what the real story was. I hope he gets another shot. The two surgeries have hurt his development, but he can throw hard.
