Dodgers minor league pitcher Adrian Salcedo received a 144-game suspension without pay following a positive test for a performance enhancing drug, a metabolite of Boldenone. His season is likely over.
Salcedo did not appear in the Dodgers’ major league camp this year. The 25-year-old was on the roster of Triple-A Oklahoma City. He’d pitched the entirety of his professional career prior to this season in the Minnesota Twins organization.
Salcedo was suspended 80 games under the minor league drug prevention and treatment program in April 2015, when he tested positive for a stimulant (Heptaminol) and a performance-enhancing substance (Tamoxifen).
