Eliezer Alfonzo Suspension Dropped

MLB announced it is dropping the 100 game suspension of Rockies Eliezer Alfonzo due to “procedural issues” that were similar to Ryan Braun’s reversal.

Alfonso was suspended in 2008 for testing positive, but denied taking denied the latest charge, saying last September in a statement released by the Major League Baseball Players Association:

“I am surprised by this positive test..I learned my lesson in 2008 and have not taken any prohibited substances since then. With the union’s help, I intend to fight this suspension and look forward to appearing before the arbitrator in the near future.”

After the suspension four years ago, Alfonzo said he never knowingly took steroids but did take medicine for bronchitis while home in Venezuela.
