Seth Bynum suspended for PED use

Nationals minor league infielder Seth Bynum has received a 50-game suspension by Major League Baseball for testing positive for an amphetamine, the league announced today in a press release. The amphetamine violated the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The suspension is effective immediately.

Bynum had hit .248 with a .742 OPS and four home runs in 29 games this season for Class AAA Syracuse. Bynum has been with the organization since he signed with the Montreal Expos as an undrafted free agent in May 2004.

Not to you or me, maybe. Tough day for him.

.248 and 4 HR in AAA? He should get a refund for the stuff he bought.

it's a shame, Bynum is a good ballplayer. But this does fall into the "who gives a F***" category. Gotta get off the white pony Seth!

point of information: adderall is blue, not white.

There are different policies in Major League Baseball for suspensions regarding amphetamines and performance enhancing drugs. I believe for a suspension under amphetamine use, it is a warning for a first positive test and a 25-game suspension for a second positive test (like Mike Cameron). Is it the same in the minors? Is it 25 or 50 games?

Why leave out the length of the suspension? Was it determined yet?

This guy was a filler on the roster at best. Hitting .248 with 4 HR in AAA and on drugs? Either he is the worst player in minor league baseball or he got some bad stuff and should get his money back. See you later Seth. I heard there is a Walmart greeters job available in Harrisburg.
