Padres C Grandal suspended for 50 games

The SportsXchange

San Diego Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal received a 50-game suspension without pay from major-league baseball Wednesday after a positive test for testosterone.

Grandal will miss most of the first two months of the 2013 season for violating the substance-abuse policy by using what is considered a performance-enhancing drug.

"I am responsible for what I put into my body," Grandal said. "I must accept responsibility for my actions and serve my suspension."

As a rookie this past season, Grandal hit .297 with eight homers and 36 RBI in 226 plate appearances for the Padres. He missed significant time with an oblique injury.
