MLB Comes Down Hard On Neifi 80 Game Suspension

Detroit Tigers infielder Neifi Perez has tested positive for what MLB is labeling a "banned substance" for the third time, the second time this month. Because of the test results Perez has been suspended for 80 games ending his 2007 season. Perez had been suspended on July 6, for 25 games for the second positive test, the first positive test only results in a player needing to seek counseling. It is believed that Perez has tested positive for some sort of amphetamines, which were banned before the start of the 2006 campaign. Before that they were basically omnipresent in many MLB club houses.
