NEW YORK — San Francisco Giants pitcher Gregory Santos was suspended for 80 games without pay under Major League Baseball’s drug program on Tuesday following a positive test for Stanozolol.
The 21-year-old right-hander made his big league debut on April 22 and was 0-2 with a 22.50 ERA in two innings over three games when he was optioned to the minors six days later.
He is 1-1 with a 5.17 ERA in 14 relief appearances for Triple-A Sacramento.
Santos will lose about half his salary, which is $46,600 while in the minor leagues and the $570,500 minimum while in the major leagues.
