    His ressurgence is explained by a 3.6% walk rate.

    it was known that he used some kind of supposedly localized HGH in the healing of his elbow recently. I wonder if the positive test was related to that, the HGH breaking out of the elbow and into the pee.

    No, the reason that he was able to come back, from what I understand of the procedure, was to have stem cells inserted into his elbow which helped regrow some of the ligaments that were having problems, which had nothing to do with HGH or testosterone, as far as I can tell.
