Jenrry Mejia really likes taking steroids. He was suspended by MLB for 80 games when he tested positive for stanozolol last April, and was hit with a 162-game suspension three months later when he tested positive for stanozolol and boldenone. Today brings news that Mejia failed a third test, this time for boldenone.
This makes Mejia the first player in baseball history to have failed three tests under MLB’s stricter PED policy, and he has thus earned a lifetime ban from the game. Mejia can appeal, but seeing as how he didn’t even offer an excuse for his second positive test, we’ve probably seen the last of him. (Update: or his appeal has already been heard.)
Let’s send Mejia off by remembering the two great GIFs he gave us. There’s the one at the top of the page, and then this one:
